Almost any card that came a week after the exhausting UFC 264 and its controversy-fraught main event would seem like just a bit of a letdown. However, UFC Vegas 31 has issues beyond merely its calendar placement. The Islam Makhachev-Thiago Moises main event may be the only fight on the card whose winner will be a Top 10 fighter on Monday, and from top to bottom, the card is heavy on mismatches, at least in the eyes of the oddsmakers. Accordingly, the Pick 'Em league is in agreement on most of these fights; aside from two closely matched fights, Gabriel Benitez vs. Billy Quarantillo and Khalid Taha vs. Sergey Morozov, there's no underdog that got even 20 percent of the picks.
