UFC Fight Night heads to Rochester, NY this week, highlighted by Rafael dos Anjos vs. Kevin Lee in a Welterweight main event. Drew Zuhosky has a preview.

The last UFC event for the month of May takes place this Saturday night from Rochester, NY’s Blue Cross Arena, but not without an alteration to the fight order.

Initially, Saturday night’s co-main event was to have been a Welterweight contest between Neil Magny (21-7) and Vicente Luque (15-6-1), but earlier this week, Magny was removed from the card due to a
positive drug test. As a result of these events, a Middleweight bout between Antonio Carlos Junior (10-2) and Ian Heinisch (12-1) will now serve as the co-main event. Vincente Luque will now fight Derrick Krantz (24-10) on Saturday night.

UFC on ESPN+ 10 (main card 8 p.m. EDT, 5 p.m. PDT on ESPN+ after the prelims at 5 p.m. EDT, 2 p.m. PDT) is headlined by a Welterweight fight between top contenders. No. 3-contender Rafael dos Anjos (28-11) will meet No. 7-contender Kevin Lee (17-4) in a five-round non- title fight for the main event.

Contender Comparison

Heading into the main event, Kevin Lee is the taller contestant, standing 5-foot-10, two inches taller than dos Anjos’ 5-foot-8 frame. Both fighters are coming off losses in their last fight.

Dos Anjos has posted a 3-2 mark in his last five fights and enters the main event on a two-fight losing streak. Most recently, he lost by decision to Kamaru Usman during the Nov. 30 live finale of The Ultimate Fighter TV series on FS1.

In the other corner, Lee has likewise posted a 3-2 mark in his last five fights, losing last time out against Al Iaquinta by decision in the last UFC on FOX card in December.

The Tale of The Tape

UFC.com shows that Kevin Lee has the advantage in both reach (77 inches to 70 inches) and leg reach (39 inches to 38 inches) over Rafael dos Anjos heading into the main event.

Prediction: Kevin Lee by decision.
