The inaugural Fight Forecast looks at this weekend's UFC Fight Night 78 card, which takes place Nov. 21 at Arena Monterrey in Monterrey, Mexico. Fight Forecast previews the event by providing the fighter's career StrikeScore as well as UFC Fantasy predictions, betting odds, Kountermove prices, DraftKings prices and Fight Matrix rankings.
StrikeScore is a proprietary stat that measures striking efficiency. The formula uses Fight Metric data, so fighters without fights in the database are not included. Also, a fighter must have at least three fights in the database before the formula can considered at all predictive.
UFC Fantasy numbers are the percent of players who have picked each fighter to win. (Numbers are current as of 11/20/2015 1:00 PM EST)
Kountermove prices listed below are the dollar value used for the fantasy game.
DraftKings prices listed below are the dollar value used for the fantasy game.
Fight Matrix column represents the fighter's current ranking.
