The one-time UFC interim title challenger faced his second straight loss in the UFC against Daniel Rodriguez. However, this loss is not pulling down Lee, and he is content with his performance at the UFC Fight Night.

The 28-year-old kept his head high and posted a message on his Instagram, vowing to come back stronger. Lee wrote, “Didn’t have a good performance this last time out, but honestly, after 500 days away and multiple surgeries, I’m proud of what I was able to do. I tried climbing a very tall mountain, and this was just another speed bump on the way.”

I’m still competing with the best in the world and won’t hang my head just yet. If you have something negative to say, f*k you from the bottom of my heart. F*k, all the hate yell can burn in hell. And thank you to everyone who has reached out with love. I’m not done yet. Not at all.”
