    Tony is definitely a top lightweight but only 14% for Lee is very surprising. I honestly predict he will win this fight.

    His wrestling and ground game are really good. Neck and neck with Khabib. He's tough as heck too. People will spam the Santos gif but I would refer them to the Mustafaev fight. So much durability was shown in that fight.

    Lee by RNC.

    Beating Michael Chiesa and then getting a title shot off of that is not what it looks like when a man is being underrated.

    The only way Kevin wins is if he is able to take Tony's back and get an RNC. If the fight stays standing Tony takes the decision.

    I hope he pans out. The "wrestler who develops great BJJ/subs" style (Barnett, Phil Davis, Rockhold, Faber, Mighty Mouse, Miesha GREAT) is one of the coolest and most overlooked combos.

    Chiesa and Trinaldo is a bigger deal than defeating Micheal Johnson in the last 2 years.

    Well yeah, but Khabib isn't being underrated either right?

    I think everyone sees potential but he just isn't proven. Tony has had wars.

    Kevin Lee is a better wrestler and just as lethal on the ground.

    Got KO'd by a BJJ grappler and Tony hits hard . I see him catching him with a crazy combo from some weird angle then going for the TKO/ KO.

    I was talking about the poll. This is a closer fight than Sherdog wants to admit.

    For the fucking umpteenth time i'm gonna ask: where the fuck is Khabib? Why is Ferguson not fighting Khabib?

    I think Ferguson as he's been performing recently stands a very good chance of stopping Lee.

    Taisumov is overrated. Lee would outgrapple him worse than Prazeres did.
