This stat is simply the rate at which a fighter finishes a fight before the final bell when he/she wins. When building UFC DFS lineups we want fighters who have a higher finish rate as that garnishes the most points for our UFC DFS lineups. We must remember that just because a fighter is high priced doesn’t mean they are more likely to finish. DK and FD pricing is based off odds to win.
This stat represents how often a fighter gets finishes before the final bell when he/she loses. Like finish rate above we want the fighters we pick to go up against fighters who have a tendency to get KO’d or submitted more often than not. A big mistake people make in UFC DFS, especially when picking high priced fighters, is not looking at the finish rate of their opponents. Some fighters are just very tough and take it to the final bell consistently. We must also take their win/loss record into account when looking at this stat. If a fighter only has one loss and they were finished then that rate is obviously a little overblown.

This stat is pretty self explanatory. The bigger the number behind the – means the bigger the fighter is favored to win. UFC DFS fighter prices are soley based off of this number. We can sometimes can catch Fanduel or Draftkings when odds shift later in the week making one fighter under priced, but that doesn’t happen all that often.

Sit back and enjoy the action of UFC 255!
