UFC on Fox 31 Betting Lines, Preview & Expert Predictions

Lee Ready to Keep Rolling

The 26-year-old Lee brings a record of 17-3 into the fight, while the 31-year-old Iaquinta holds a record of 13-4-1. Lee’s last fight was a TKO win over Edson Barboza, while Iaquinta lost via decision to Khabib Nurmagomedov.

Iaquinta Looking to Get Back on Track

Iaquinta is a well-known striker, who is very well balanced, and knows how to use his body to cause damage to his opponents. A rhythm fighter, he can sense when his opponent is struggling and will pick up the striking pace.

Great Fight Coming Up

The “Motown Phenom” Kevin Lee is more accustomed to grappling, but his striking skills are improving by the day. Even though he may be challenged to a striking match if Lee wants to be victorious, his best chances maybe by taking the fight to the ground.

Barboza vs. Hooker Set to Thrill

Another top fight on the card is Edson Barboza vs. Dan Hooker. The 19-6 Barboza has lost his previous two fights. The Brazilian looks to use his kicking abilities to stymie his opponents. Since moving to the lightweight division, the 17-7 Hooker has won his last four fights via stoppage. Hooker had been asking the UFC to give him a top-tier opponent, and in Barboza, he’s getting one.

Font Battles Pettis

Rob Font will take on Sergio Pettis in a bantamweight fight.

Sergio Pettis is one of the favorites for UFC on FOX 31.

The 17-4 Pettis is making a return to the bantamweight division to take on the 15-4 Font. Pettis is a native of Milwaukee, so the crowd will be behind their hometown boy.

Miller vs. Oliveria

And the final main card fight of the evening will pit Jim Miller against Charles Oliveira. Oliveira, who holds the record for most submission wins in UFC history, is looking for revenge against Miller. Miller dealt Oliveira his first loss via submission in December of 2010.

Oliveira has won 3 of his last 4 fights. Miller, who has fought a record 30 times for the UFC, will look to extend his UFC record for wins in the lightweight division. This should be an exciting match of record holders.

The UFC Fight Nights never seem to disappoint, and this card looks to be one that will keep everyone excited. Enjoy the fights and best of luck with all your betting!
