Kevin Lee Misses Weight, Main Event Still Goes Ahead — UFC Atlantic City

Kevin Lee Misses Weight, Main Event Still Goes Ahead — UFC Atlantic City

Holloway was expected to face Frankie Edgar at UFC 222 in March, but had to withdraw due to injury. "I wanted to go all five rounds, show my complete game". Barboza enters the contest looking to rebound from a decision loss to current champion Khabib Nurmagomedov at UFC 219 in December. "It's Khabib time, baby". Saturday's crowd was the biggest since 11,332 watched boxing legend Bernard Hopkins beat Kelly Pavlik on Oct. 18, 2008. However, it was a much more dominant and one-sided performance for Edgar in that particular fight. Lee connected with a series of shots to the right of Barboza's face with more brute force than in any bench-clearing baseball brawl. Bahadurzada follows that up with a two punch combination against Chagas, Bahadurzada scores a takedown on Chagas and he gets the full guard. If we look at the rest of the UFC, we can begin to explore short layoffs and how they might impact fighters. Lee was choked out by Tony Ferguson in October.

"I can do it all", Lee said. I feel like I did that.

Kevin Lee has set his sights on a title fight with lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov following his TKO win over Edson Barboza.

Henry, the longtime coach of Edgar will also be coaching Barboza and Corey Anderson on Saturday night, with the stakes varying for each fighter. Oddsmakers have Santos as the favorite, giving him odds of -170 to win while Branch is listed with a +150 money line.

"I want to fight with you", Jung wrote.

"I said it before this fight, mental strength would win it", Lee said. He is now on a roll with a record of 3-0 in the UFC; whilst in contrast, Sherman is now 11-5 and his future is quite uncertain.

He's built like a truck, has a giant tattoo of Mjolnir (read: Thor's hammer) in the middle of his chiselled chest and the way he's been settling people of late, you'd think he was hitting them with said mythic hammer.

Back to striking range they go and Barboza lands a massive wheel kick and Lee is rocked badly, with his legs going in all directions as he tries to stay upright.

Elsewhere on the main card, New Zealand lightweight Dan Hooker (16-7) handed Sparta Township's Jim Miller (28-12) his fourth straight loss. Nurmagomedov was able to render him powerless on the ground, and while Lee uses a different style and isn't on Nurmagomedov's level yet, he gave serious trouble to Ferguson on the ground. Something that is not always easy to do when you are deep into a fight after an excruciating weight cut.

UFC ran a card in Atlantic City for the first time since July 2014 at the former Revel Casino. According to the latest oddsmakers at YouWager, Lee is listed as the favorite in this bout, as he is getting odds of -160 to win.

Conor McGregor's lucky UFC star Kevin Lee wasn't in the bus he attacked - 'cause if he was, K-Lee says he would've gone full Dark Knight on his ass!
