Former UFC lightweight title challenger Kevin Lee who is returning to action against Edson Barboza in the main headliner at UFC Fight Night 128, which takes place April 21 at Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, N.J. The main card will kick off on FS1 following prelims on FS2 and UFC Fight Pass.
Both athletes are looking to bounce back after coming off recent losses.
That loss didn’t stop Kevin Lee to lay out plans against top UFC stars. During his recent conversation with Submission radio, Lee said after taking care of upcoming fight against Edson, he wants marquee fights with Conor Mcgregor and Khabib Nurmagomedov:(Via MMAMania)
“I think me and Khabib (Nurmagomedov) are the fight to make after this. I think I’m still the marquee fight in this division for anybody. You know, me and Khabib will sell big, me and Tony got a rematch that will sell big, me and McGregor will sell big. So, it’s a lot of big fights left on the horizon. I’ll beat Edson in New Jersey and then I’ll go out there and beat Khabib in Russia. And then, who knows, maybe we’ll throw a stadium show with Conor McGregor in the future in Ireland.”
Prior to his most recent loss to Tony Ferguson, Kevin Lee picked up five-straight victories, which includes the finishes over Michael Chiesa, Francisco Trinaldo, and Jake Matthews.
At the moment top contender Khabib Nurmagomedov expected to face interim champion Tony Ferguson for the unified belt at UFC 223 on April 7 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. So time will tell who’s at the top of the division.
