      should I fold here? or is this just the unlucky over pair match up? I had no info and because there was no 3-bet pre-flop I didn't range him as Aces etc.

      I think it depends a lot on the player. Since you raised UTG I think he won´t really c/r that often with AJ for value, so that leaves draws, that he may also c/c, sets and sometimes KK/AA. I think best option likely is just b/c flop and evaluate turn. If he has there strong draws, likely A high flushdraw, your overpair has 55% equity, against sets, you´re doing really bad, so better imo is to b/c flop and decide on the turn if you want to call/fold or shove
      If you see there people c/r with Jx and stacking off then 3-bet flop and calling shove is fine
