18 votes

The UFC is in Milwaukee tonight for UFC on FOX 31, the final show in association with the FOX network. The card is one fight lighter with Jessica Rose-Clark and Andrea Lee removed due to Rose-Clark being deemed medically unfit to compete by the company due to weight-cut issues.

Kenai Andrews checks in with his thoughts on the main card.

MAIN CARD (10PM ET/7PM PT)

JIM MILLER (29-12-0, 1NC) VS. CHARLES OLIVIEIRA (24-8-0, 1NC)

UFC on FOX 31

Andrews: The veteran Miller recently stopped a four fight losing streak but I think Oliveira out-strikes him here to get the decision win.

Andrews Prediction: Charles Oliveira via UD

#10 ROB FONT (17-4-0) VS. #2 SERGIO PETTIS (15-4-0) 

UFC on FOX 31

Andrews: Good matchup as both have fought top competition recently. I am going with Sergio Pettis to overcome Font’s strength and get the technical decision.

Andrews Prediction: Sergio Pettis via UD

#5 EDSON BARBOZA (19-5-0) VS. #14 DAN HOOKER (18-7-0) 

UFC on FOX 31

Andrews: Good matchup. I give the edge to Barboza as he should have gained some experience from fighting Khabib. This should be a barnburner.

Andrews Prediction: Edson Barboza via TKO

MAIN EVENT 

#4 KEVIN LEE (13-4-1) VS. #8 AL IAQUINTA (13-4-1)

UFC on FOX 31

Andrews: Both guys have gained valuable experience fighting the top guys in the division. Al rocked Lee in the first fight and I wonder if he can do it again, because without that the fight was fairly even. Again, having fought Khabib will give Iaquinta an edge even though I think Lee will attempt to put things away quickly.

Andrews Prediction: Al Iaquinta via SD
