Fight Night 152 UFC Predictions, Preview & Betting Tips – dos Anjos vs Lee
We have UFC Predictions for Fight Night 152, which is headlined by welterweights Rafael dos Anjos vs Kevin Lee.
There has been plenty of talk before the main event, as there always is with Kevin Lee, but now it’s time to put words into action.
The UFC Fight Night 152 card is packed full of MMA talent. Antonio Carlos Junior vs Ian Heinisch should be a good fight, but unfortunately Neil Magny has withdrawn from his fight against Vicente Luque.
UFC has yet to name a replacement, but we will provide UFC Predictions for that fight when the opposition is named.
dos Anjos vs Lee UFC Predictions
There’s eight years between these two fighters, with dos Anjos being the elder at 34 years old, but try telling him that. The Brazilian doesn’t fight like he’s 34 and he’s going to give Kevin Lee a run for his money.
However, dos Anjos will have to bounce back after suffering two losses in 2018. His most recent loss came to Kamaru Usman at The Ultimate Fighter 28 Finale. Prior to that, he lost to Colby Covington via a five-round decision.
2017 dos Anjos was a different beast, however, with three wins over quality opponents. Robbie Lawler, Neil Magny and Tarec Saffiedine were all victims of Rafael dos Anjos. He was so impressive then; bookmakers have made him the favorite for this fight.
Fans of Kevin Lee (17-4), know just how good he can be, but he needs to be more consistent. Lee looked supreme when knocking out Edson Barboza at Fight Night 128 but he was largely dominated by Al Iaquinta at UFC on Fox 31.
“The Motown Phenom” needs to let his fists do the talking for once and if he’s focused, he could cause a minor upset in New York – where the crowd should be on his side.
Our dos Anjos vs Lee UFC Predictions are going with Rafael dos Anjos. He didn’t win in 2018 but he looks focused for fight and we’re expecting plenty of support to come for him come fight night.

Antonio Carlos Junior vs Ian Heinisch UFC Predictions
This fight could be overly quickly and our UFC Predictions are expecting an Antonio Carlos Junior victory.
The 29-year-old is a physical specimen and although he has 2 losses and 1 no contest on his record, he’s as dangerous as they come. He’s coming off a win over Tim Boetsch at UFC on Fox 29 where he won via first round submission.
Prior to that, his two fights were cancelled, so we didn’t get a good look at his ability against top-level opponents. However, Ian Heinisch isn’t a top-level opponent and ACJ could take advantage of that.
Heinisch is 12-1 after winning his first and only UFC fight against Cezar Ferreira. Prior to that, he was a winner of Dana White’s Contender Series.
He’s a stand-up fighter who can easily be submitted. Coming up against Carlos Junior could be his worse nightmare and we’re expecting him to struggle.
