Kevin Lee Vs Al Iaquinta is the main event on UFC on Fox 31 and is one of the most important fights that can be made in the 155lb division. On 15 December 2018 at the Fiserv Forum in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, United States, these two world class grapplers will slug it out for the second time, with a brilliant undercard to MMA fans to enjoy.
It has been nearly 5 years since a 21-year old Kevin Lee and a 26-year cold ‘Raging’ Al Iaquinta first met inside the UFC octagon, as two young, up and coming Lightweights looking to make their mark on this deepest of UFC divisions.
In 2014, it was Al Iaquinta, with age and experience on his side at the time, who came out on top at UFC 169 in his hometown of New Jersey. It was a memorable encounter, with loads of grappling and striking exchanges but ultimately, Al Iaquinta came out comfortably on top, securing a unanimous decision victory.
Since then both fighters have had vastly different walks of life, but there was always a feeling that the evenly matched pair would meet again. This time, the Kevin Lee Vs Al Iaquinta betting odds sees Kevin Lee as the -300 favourite on the UFC betting lines with both William Hill and bet365* online. This will seem crazy to most people, with Al Iaquinta trading as the +250 underdog with Betway Sports.
Kevin Lee’s latest victory was a hugely impressive TKO victory over Edson Barboza, proving that Lee now has to be respected as a truly high level striker, as well as a world class wrestler.
His biggest demon has been making the weight class at 155lb, but you’d have to be confident that he will now have his nutrition and weight cutting program on point so he should make the 155.5lb limit on Friday. If he does, then favourite backers will be confident of a win. At -300, Kevin Lee is a strong betting pick to gain his revenge win over Al Iaquinta, who is an excellent fighter himself but clearly has not enjoyed the same upward curve of clear improvement since they last fought.
