UFC on Fox 14 Fantasy Preview Plus $200 Kountermove Freeroll for MMAOddsBreaker Readers

KountermoveThe mixed martial arts (MMA) fantasy website Kountermove is back with another freeroll for MMAOddsBreaker.com readers. If you’re not familiar with how the site works, here’s a brief snippet from the site owners, themselves.

Kountermove brings the traditional fantasy format to MMA. Accumulation of points and a salary cap make fantasy MMA more intriguing than your basic “pick ’em” contest. With other industry pros on the site it is the place to be if you know your MMA. The game is fairly simple on its face, games are played over a single night during one event. Prior to the event, players get a total of $25,000 fantasy dollars to pick five fighters for your team. Each fighter is given a specific salary by Kountermove. Kountermove assigns a value for each fighter based on how we believe the fight will go. Points are scored if a fighter scores a finish, wins a round, lands significant strikes, knocks an opponent down, scores takedowns, secures dominant positions or attempts submissions. The more dominant your fighters’performance, the more points you’re going to score. If you score more points than your opponents, then you win the money.

If you’re interested in a few pointers on potential fighters to pick, I’ll be offering my analysis and potential picks to click. In case you have your doubts, I have a very nice track record of success with the website, having won plenty since its inception. Before I get to my picks, remember that to get the best value out of your team, you have to try to get an average of $5000 per fighter with your team of five fighters and your $25,000 salary cap. That means if you want to pick a big favorite from UFC on Fox 14 like Alexander Gustafsson ($5700) you have to balance it out by picking some underdogs that you think will perform above and beyond. Sometimes it’s not worth it to pick the overwhelming favorite. Without further ado, here are some of the picks that stand out for me: Albert Tumenov ($5000): Tumenov has been an absolute destroyer of worlds in his last two fights, putting up HUGE Kountermove scores with devastating first round knockouts of Anthony Lapsley and Matt Dwyer. He’s taking a step up in competition with the preliminary card headliner bout against Nico Musoke and he’ll be fighting in hostile territory, but the threat of a one-punch knockout is still there. Tumenov has insane power in both his hands and his feet, and Musoke is hittable in the stand-up portion. The only concern is if Tumenov gets put on his back by the solid Swedish grappler. Tumenov lost his UFC debut after nearly finishing Ildemar Alcantara in the first round but ultimately getting outgrappled in the final two frames, so that is a cause for concern here. Ultimately, the risk is worth the reward, however, as if Tumenov wins, he’s going to be putting up another huge score for your team. Underdog Pick of the Night Sultan Aliev ($4500): Aliev has gained a ton of public support in the last couple days and has become a bit of a bandwagon pick especially after people saw how huge he was in the UFC welterweight division as he makes his debut tonight against veteran Kenny Robertson. On paper, Aliev is a very tough match-up for Robertson and possesses several traits that have given Robertson trouble in the past: great wrestling and heavy hands. Robertson has middling stand-up ability but some excellent submissions, but if he can’t take Aliev out, he’s going to get controlled either via top position on the ground or against the fence. Robertson also doesn’t handle heavy strikes well and Aliev can dish them out, having won a significant majority of his bouts via knockout. Fighter to Avoid Viktor Pesta ($4600): This isn’t really a fade of Pesta, it’s more because of the uncertainty of his upcoming match-up against Konstantin Erokhin. Pesta is still a very raw talent at heavyweight, but has shown some promise, nearly finishing Ruslan Magomedov in his UFC debut last year. That being said, he still has a long way to go before he’s a technical mixed martial artist. That could get him in trouble against Erokhin, who possesses some of the most powerful fists of any UFC newcomer in recent memory. If Pesta showcases similar striking ability as his UFC debut, he could be in for a very short night against the Russian hand-to-hand specialist.
