RotoWire Staff Picks: UFC 232
RotoWire Staff Picks: UFC 232

This article is part of our RotoWire Staff Picks series.

Chalk was king at UFC 231, but UFC 232 features multiple title fights and other hotly-contested matchups in terms of betting odds. A late event relocation caused chaos for many of the fighters and prospective attendees, but line movement has held relatively steady leading up to the Saturday event.

As a reminder, these are purely picks. If you're looking for a fantasy-specific breakdown of these fights on DraftKings, click here for Jon Litterine's UFC 232 preview.
