ANALYSIS:

This is a 10* play on KEVIN LEE

UFC Fight Night 170 IS on. The card will take place in an empty arena in Brazil, bucking the trend of most  major sporting events either cancelling or postponing in the wake of the Coronavirus outbreak. Adding to the complexity of this show is the fact that Kevin Lee missed weight (155 lbs), which means he’ll have to forfeit 20% of his purse to opponent Charles Oliveira. This isn’t the first time in his career Lee has missed weight. We still like him to get the job done in Saturday’s main event. He looked very impressive in his last fight when he used a striking advantage to defeat former NCAA wrestler Gregor Gillespie via 1st round knockout. Lee is also a takedown artist and getting this particular fight to the ground could be to his advantage, despite how effective Oliveira is with submissions. We look for Lee to impress the judges with his takedowns and think he’s smart enough to avoid the submission. Oliveira’s recent form is such that he figures to be a VERY popular underdog. We’ll fade that mentality.  Play on KEVIN LEE
