Kevin Lee returned to the Lightweight division in his last fight after an unsuccessful venture up to Welterweight, with the 27 year-old American impressively beating the highly-rated and previously undefeated Gregor Gillespie in November last year with a first round KO.

The 30 year-old Brazilian Charles Oliveira is also in good form at present, having won his last six UFC fights all within the opening two rounds. The last of these wins saw him beat Jared Gordon with a first round KO in November 2019.

Betting Odds - Winner

Although this fight will be in front of Oliveira’s own fans, Lee should be full of confidence following his win over Gillespie. He’s also a fighter that has never been afraid of fighting in his opponent’s backyard.

Oliveira is known for his grappling and has the most submission wins in UFC history with 13. However, it’s debatable as to whether he has the striking power to take Lee down and the American is also a top grappler himself.
