Kevin Lee is an American professional mixed martial artist, currently fighting in the UFC Lightweight division. Lee suffered from serious knee injuries and underwent surgeries last year and is currently on a break from the Octagon.
In a recent interview with MMA Junkie, Kevin Lee discussed his return to the Octagon this summer as he hopes to get a rematch with Tony Ferguson. He mentioned this in the interview saying,
“I’m wanna fight Tony Ferguson. I think that fight makes a whole lot of sense from all angles. I don’t really see nobody else out there for him to fight and it just makes sense and it’ll put us back where we should be and a fight with me and him is gonna kind of show like one of us is gonna have to win one of us gonna have to leave so that that’s a fight that really interests me in this summer.”
These two former Grand Valley State University wrestlers faced each other in the octagon at UFC 216. But Kevin Lee aka “The Motown Phenom” lost to the “El Cucuy” via submission (triangle choke). Since then, Kevin Lee has wanted to get his redemption and is waiting to get back in the Octagon as soon as possible.
Tony Ferguson is an American lightweight division mixed martial artist who carries a lot of experience. The moment he steps into the octagon, he is a fighter with mental toughness and discipline. He holds a very good record of 25-5 in his MMA career.
Meanwhile, 28-year-old Kevin Lee, who holds a record of 18-6, is also an American professional mixed martial artist. “The Motown Phenom” is a young and promising fighter for sure. He also has a good number of excellent wins on his record sheet. And while it’s been a tough few months for Lee, he is looking to come back stronger this year.
