With UFC 140 kicking off Saturday afternoon, here is a sample of how fantasy MMA players are sizing up the fights. In the main event, Jon Jones is the dominant choice (98%) and most rank Jones as one of their top locks of the night. Frank Mir is getting 93% of the picks over Minotauro Nogueira, while the other Nogueira brother, Rogerio, is picked by 86% to win over Tito Ortiz.

Overall, only two fights are picked somewhat evenly: Claude Patrick 34% vs. Brian Ebersole 66% and Yves Jabouin 61% vs. Walel Watson 39%.

Six fights have one-sided action with 90% or more of the picks coming in for Jones, Mir, Hominick, Soszynski, Cholish, and Attonito. A loss by one or more of those fighters will see some very unhappy fantasy players. The table below lists the fighter and the percentage of fantasy players that are picking the fighter in one Fantasy UFC league.
