This UFC on Fox 31 main event matchup is a significant fight in the 145lb featherweight division and the Oliveira Vs Miller betting odds show Charles Oliveira as the -303 favourite to win at 888sport, and veteran Jim Miller the +250 underdog at bet365*.
Miller has had 41 professional MMA bouts and the 35-year old is one of the toughest fighters on the roster, but his record in recent years has regressed somewhat and he has lost 8 of his last 13 fights. At UFC 228, Miller secured an impressive victory by rear naked choke over Alex White and if that can bring out the Miller of old, he could have a chance to get another “W” on the board.
But Charles Oliveira is the younger man and arguably the more skilled mixed martial artist. At the age of 29, Oliveira is reaching the prime time of his career and although he is about three wins away from a title shot, Jim Miller would be a really good win to have on his record. Oliveira has won three of his last four fights, all by rear naked choke or guillotine choke. The Sao Paulo based, Brazilian native has been practising the art of Brazilian Jiu Jitzu since he was twelve years old and is a legitimate black belt operator, so he is as dangerous as they come in the featherweight division.
If Oliveira does have a weakness, it is his takedown defence, so he will be trying to use his in and out footwork and movement to evade the attentions of the wrestling specialist Miller.
Our Charles Oliveira Vs Jim Miller betting tips have an easy conclusion. Charles Oliveira is a short odds betting favourite with good reason. In beating Christos Giagos in September, he broke the UFC record for total submission wins and he can extend that advantage with another victory on Saturday night.
