Curtis Blaydes and Derrick Lewis headline Saturday's UFC card and give us an obvious MVP candidate for UFC DFS. Who should we target there, and who else stands out in each salary tier on FanDuel?

Curtis Blaydes and Derrick Lewis bring 29 combined knockouts into a heavyweight main event on Saturday that seems sure to be full of chaos. Which fighters are the best picks for daily fantasy UFC on FanDuel? numberFire’s Austin Swaim explains why one main event fighter in UFC daily fantasy is similar to Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes, how to handle the plethora of small sample sizes on this weekend's card, and an action-packed fight worthy of stacking consideration inside Austin's Fight of the Night.

(UPDATE: The Blaydes versus Lewis bout has been postponed after Lewis tested positive for COVID-19. Anthony Smith versus Devin Clark will now be a five-round fight as the main event.)
