UFC on ESPN+ 10: Dos Anjos vs. Lee predictions

Is Kevin Lee ready to run at 170 pounds?

The UFC is in Rochester, New York this weekend as former lightweight champion and No. 3 Rafael dos Anjos welcomes Kevin Lee to the welterweight division in the main event.

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

DAVI RAMOS (9-2-0) VS. AUSTIN HUBBARD (10-2-0) 

Andrews: I like Ramos as he’s beaten some good competition and Hubbard is making his first appearance.

Andrews Prediction: Davi Ramos via UD

CHARLES OLIVEIRA (26-8-0) VS. NIK LENTZ (30-9-2)

Andrews: Lentz is tough but Oliveira should be able to get the fight to the ground and grind out a submission.

Andrews Prediction: Charles Oliveira via submission

DERRICK KRANTZ (23-10-0) VS. VICENTE LUQUE (15-6-1)

Andrews: Krantz is replacing Neil Magny on short notice. He’s a good young kid, but Luque should get the win here.

Andrews Prediction: Vicente Luque via submission

MEGAN ANDERSON (9-3-0) VS. FELICIA SPENCER (6-0-0)

Andrews: Anderson wants to atone for that weird loss to Zingano. Spencer did well in Invicta but I don’t see her overcoming both the octagon jitters and Anderson.

Andrews Prediction: Megan Anderson via TKO

ANTONIO CARLOS JR. (10-2-1) VS. IAN HEINISCH (12-1-0)

Andrews: Antonio has to get the fight to the floor or Ian will win a decision. The thing is, I think ACJ can get the takedown and get the tap.

Andrews Prediction: Antonio Carlos Jr. via submission

MAIN EVENT

#3 RAFAEL DOS ANJOS (28-11-0) VS. KEVIN LEE (17-4-0)

Andrews: Lee should be the bigger fighter and has that advantage but he doesn’t have the skills or experience of RDA. Dos Anjos lost to bigger guys who had the skills like Unman but if he stays aggressive like he did against Alvarez and Pettis, he should get the decision.

Andrews Prediction: Rafael dos Anjos via UD
