UFC Fight Night 112: Chiesa vs. Lee, more commonly known as UFC Oklahoma City, goes down Sunday night, with lightweights Michael Chiesa and Kevin Lee facing off in the main event. The Oklahoma City, OK card might be a little light in the star power department, but it does have notable names in former champion Johnny Hendricks taking on Tim Boetsch, and UFC legend B.J. Penn desperately looking for one more win against Dennis Siver.With little to no more relevance than the Bellator NYC the night before, it’s a wonder the UFC didn’t avoid this particular weekend all together, but at the very least, there should be a few fun fights on the card, which kicks off at 5:30PM EST on Fight Pass with a trio of early prelim bouts.
Michael Chiesa vs. Kevin Lee: In the main event, newly heated rivals will collide following their press conference scuffle, as TUF 15 winner Michael Chiesa takes on the rapidly rising Kevin Lee. Lee is an incredible athlete with great explosiveness and quickness. His star is on the rise, as he’s 8-2 in the UFC with four straight wins coming into this bout. That includes three straight finishes over the likes of Francisco Trinaldo, Magomed Mustafaev and Jake Matthews.
As for Chiesa, he’s looking to also position himself in the title picture, as the heavy grappler is very strong and talented on the mat. He’s 7-2 in his UFC tenure, including three straight wins coming into this bout against Mitch Clarke, Jim Miller and Beneil Dariush (submitted Miller and Dariush). This is a very good matchup, and though it may have some “boring” parts, it will be a great chess match. I think Chiesa edges Lee here in a great bout.
