    Kevin Lee is the better fighter

    He underestimated Ferg's ground game and got caught like GSP got caught against Hughes but there's no doubt on who is the better fighter, he took him down whenever he wanted and mauled him on the ground until that moment

    He's the next GSP

    This is coming from a former hater

    Everyone is a better fighter than Ferguson and rocks him in the first round but still loses to him in the end.

    Tony loses almost all of his fights until he wins them. Is normal

    Except RDA. He dominated that fight bell to bell

    Kevin was losing the standup game IIRC. Otherwise he damn well knew Ferg was dangerous on the ground.

    Lee gassed out vs. Tony, likely because of his staph infection, which looked nasty. But in the first round you could clearly see what tremendous potential he has. He should stay in the top 5 or 6 for a long time to come, and it should be no surprise to anyone if he becomes champ in the next 5 years. He's only 25.

    Kevin lost because he gassed, and he gassed because of staph (watch his last fight against Barboza he went 5 rounds barely slowing down). He beats Tony in the rematch.

    We don't know how he would do without staph. We now don't know if Fergusen will be as good after his injury.

    Crazy to know that the guy fought with staph, though. Even though he lost, there's a possibility that he was better when healthy. Probably was a little early for that level of fight though, I think.

    You should watch it again, Tony dominated the second round and was pretty much taunting Lee to take him down in the third so he can finish him, not to mention dude was on his feet yelling at Lee between rounds, Cucuy is an animal <{JustBleed}>

    tony won second round and finished in the third. If lee was unable to make it past 5 minutes before being done, he should have backed out.

    Kevin Lee is a fucking beast. He just needs to keep the weight under control and keep working on his skills. Sky is the limit.

    People make such a mistake when they count out fighters who lose one or two fights.. There was a time when the current heavyweight champion was being regarded as someone that could never claim the title. Now he’s arguably the greatest ever in the UFC in that division. People improve. They go back to the drawing board and get better.

    Didn't RDA start strong and take a couple rounds off him? Haven't watched it since it happened, but that's what I remember.

    I give it 2 years before lee wears gold. He has a very bright future. He’s what 26? Great fighter on the rise.

    Scorecards dont really matter RDA had barely any moments of success in that fight, Tony just walked him down and pieced him up for 25 minutes

    He's 0-1 vs Tony Ferguson.

    Ferguson is the better fighter.

    Kevin Lee is mentally weak (he said it) and he will quit 10/10 times against a beast like Ferguson who keeps coming forward. Same with Khabib. Both of them smash Kevin 10/10 times.

    Except for the 10 minutes that he lost by walking down, not landing much, and getting hit by punches and kicks.

    But that don't matter.
