The 27 year-old American won his last fight with an impressive first round KO of the highly-rated and previously unbeaten Gregor Gillespie in November last year, although he lost three of his four fights prior to that.
The 30 year-old Brazilian comes into this fight having won his last six bouts, (seven if you include a points decision win over fellow Brazilian Lucas Barros in a Grappling Bout in January this year). His last UFC fight saw him beat Jared Gordon with a first round KO in November last year.
Kevin Lee vs Charles Oliveira UFC Betting Lines & Prediction
This fight is on Charles Oliveira’s home turf, but Kevin Lee is a quality fighter who comes into this fight on the back of a huge win. The Gillespie fight saw Lee drop back to Lightweight after trying his luck for one fight at Welterweight and, in terms of UFC Fight Night 170 predictions, he looks to have the power to see him through against the Brazilian.
Even though Oliveira is known as a grappler and has the most submission wins in UFC history with 13, Lee is also a top grappler. Lee also has the greater experience when it comes to taking on the bigger names and he is the tip to use that big fight experience to win here.
