It is worth noting that the Genesis Standard, Genesis Premium and Genesis CORE Add-On packs are all still available for purchase. These packs contain top UFC fighters, along with a random distribution of a majority of the fighters stepping into the octagon this weekend.

Find a sneak peek of this article below:
On this slate, the perfect lineup construction was rostered by three different players, and oddly enough, these winners each solo-shipped the CORE, RARE and ELITE contests.
This construction was an unpopular build due to it requiring Marquez Valdes-Scantling, who scored the most fantasy points this weekend despite a disappointing 2022 campaign. It should be noted that MVS greatly benefited from injuries that knocked out JuJu Smith-Schuster, Mecole Hardman, and Kadarius Toney.
