On Sunday, UFC Fight Night 112 will take place in Oklahoma and its fight card promises a perfect blend of UFC veterans and newcomers. Veterans like former UFC Lightweight and Welterweight champion B.J. Penn and former Welterweight champion Johny Hendricks will try to turn back the clock and attempt to remain relevant in today’s UFC. Both fighters’ fights are also much-watch television due to their knockout power and their submission expertise. But the best potential for an exciting finish lies with Kevin Lee and Michael Chiesa who will go toe-to-toe in the main event.
Kevin Lee, the 24-year-old fighter from Michigan, is currently 15-2 and can be a potential superstar in this organization as his career progresses. Known as a submission specialist, Lee has won seven of his fights via submission including each of his last two fights. However, Lee’s recent performances in the octagon have been overshadowed by his questionable comments in various press conferences and interviews. As for this fight, Lee might have overstepped his boundaries when he made comments about Chiesa’s mother in a press conference which led to the pair exchanging punches at the venue. Lee will have to be on his A-game if he hopes to defeat Chiesa who might have some added motivation to beat Lee in the octagon.
Lee’s opponent, Michael Chiesa, is also a submission specialist who boasts a 14-2 record with 10 of his wins coming via submission including one in each of his last two fights. Despite being elite on the ground, Chiesa is not known for being an effective striker and he will probably look to take this upcoming fight immediately to the ground where he can potentially choke Lee out.
This fight between Chiesa and Lee looks like an even chess match at first look. Both fighters prefer to fight on the ground and use their takedowns and submissions to score points and win via decision or stoppage. Since both fighters are significantly worse in a stand-up style bout, I expect this fight to be a constant struggle for position on the ground with very little time spent throwing strikes. I personally think that Chiesa will win this fight via submission because he is slightly better than Lee on the ground and has an added incentive to destroy Lee in this fight. Either way, it should be a very entertaining and close fight from beginning to end.
