Due to the Coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic, the UFC Fight Night: Lee vs. Oliveira event is now taking place “behind closed doors” at the Ginásio Nilson Nelson in Brasília, Brazil. Time and date will not change; The card starts at 3 p.m ET on March 14, 2020
The UFC president, Dana White, has announced that at least four of the upcoming UFC events will be held behind closed doors and without public.
Here is my free pick for this card, should the fights take place as planned.
Francisco Trinaldo wins via Decision (+220) x1
Francisco Trinaldo vs. John Makdessi – Main card (ESPN+/ESPN)
I like Trinaldo to land a higher volume of strikes over the course of three rounds to take home a unanimous decision victory over the veteran Makdessi in this 155-pound affair. This is a very close fight, as both fighters match up really well, but I believe the brazilian will be able to out-land Makdessi. Plus, Trinaldo has not lost a decision in Brazil in about eight years, so I have to favor him all things considered.
