It looks like everyone has an opinion about UFC lightweight champ Conor Mcgregor’s recent controversies including Kevin Lee who doesn’t think that Mcgregor will have much trouble in blowing his money like his fellow pugilist Floyd Mayweather.
Kevin Lee and Conor Mcgregor both are due to return to Octagon. Mcgregor who last seen in action at UFC 205 against Eddie Alvarez and won the bout via TKO to score a UFC lightweight championship. But Kevin Lee vows to fight sooner rather than later and scold at UFC champ that he needs to get his shit together.
Kevin Lee speaking to MMA Junkie.
“Yeah, that boy [Conor McGregor is] f-cking up. I don’t know if the rumors are true or whatever, he better gets his sh-t together because he’s got a long mountain to climb. People are saying oh, is he going to fight, is he going to do this? I take the man for his word. He say he a fighter. I think he’s gonna’ come back. He has to come back and try to defend that title. He’s got a long mountain to climb up there. He’s got Tony [Ferguson] as soon as he comes back. Tony’s going to beat the hell out of him. As soon as he loses that one, I’m going to beat the hell out of him and then he’s going to be down in the dirt.”
“That $100 million? It’s cool and all, he’s spending it fast. You can blow through that quick. Ask Floyd Mayweather, Floyd done did that about six or seven times. $100 million, you can blow through it. I don’t think he really understands what he’s getting himself into, if he’s really messing around with the Irish mob. I don’t think he’s really from the streets like that. I don’t think he wants none of that smoke. But that’s on him. I’m just looking forward to his comeback, and looking forward to taking him out after he gets his ass beat.”

Kevin Lee who last fought against Tony Ferguson at UFC 216 and lost the bout by submission in the third round. There is no news on who Lee will fight next, but he is eyeing a fight with McGregor sometimes down the line. Even interim champ Tony Ferguson is waiting in a line for a title unification with Conor Mcgregor.
Mcgregor has no plan to return to Octagon until April of 2108 as per his coach. No doubt he has such power that everyone wants to fight him.
