Kevin Lee makes bold prediction against Edson Barboza

UFC Fight Night Barboza vs Lee card TV channel live stream UK time date and odds

In the night's main event, Brazilian Edson Barboza clashes with former interim lightweight title challenger Kevin Lee. Lee looks for a takedown and Barboza avoids it, the referee halts the fight so a doctor can check a cut on Barboza and the doctor stops the fight.

Both Barboza and Lee are great fighters but in a lightweight division that is stacked and sees new prospects emerging all the time, both of these fighters need a win this weekend in order to show the MMA world and the UFC brass they each have what it takes to be a champion in this sport. In the middle of the fight, Lee was able to overcome a signature Edson Barboza spinning wheel kick and recover on his way to a fifth round TKO stoppage due to a cut.

Lee stepped on the scales at Bally's in Atlantic City, NJ with just minutes to spare prior to the 11:00 AM cut-off.

IPL 2018, RCB vs DD: Here are the final Playing eleven
For Bangalore , Chahal was the pick of the bowlers with figures of 2/22 while Umesh, Anderson and Sundar bagged one wicket apiece. The south paw started cautiously and raised the tempo only towards the end, collecting six fours and seven sixes along the way.

"You folks know what time it is". Lee, who did miss weight on Friday, rebounded from an October loss to Tony Ferguson that snapped his five-fight win streak. "It's Khabib time, baby", Lee said. After losing against Iaquinta in his UFC debut, Lee went on a nice four-fight run and many thought he was going to be the future lightweight champion. Akhmat Fight Club standout Magomed Bibulatov has been forced to pull out of his scheduled bout against Yuta Sasaki at UFC Fight Night 128.

Lee will be fined 20% of his fight-purse (which will go to Barboza) and we're sure that this unfortunate turn of events will not help his chances of securing himself a title fight any time soon, especially after the chaos of UFC 223's aforementioned fight-week.
