Prediction

Both of these fighters have been very hot as of late. Demian Maia is at the back end off his career looking for some of the momentum that he had early on. Gilbert Burns, on the other hand, is one of the most exciting young fighters in not only Brazil, but the entire UFC. He comes into this fight as the heavy favorite and for good reason. I am taking Gilbert Burns -165 in this fight.

Best Bet: Gilbert Burns -165

Prediction

Charles Oliveira has been one of the hottest fighters in Brazil winning his last 6 fights. He had done a very good job at finishing fights with his last fight that went to decision coming in December of 2014. One area that he does struggle with is his striking defense. Kevin Lee, on the other hand, has been one of the best strikers in the UFC. However, he has only been able to win 2 of his last 5 lights. The odds in this fight should be much closer in this fight. My pick for this on is Oliverira +140.

Best Bet: Charles Oliveira +135
