    Tomorrow marks the first time for Edson Barboza headlining a fight card. For Lee, this is his 3rd, and his second TV card headline. Lee has a 1-1 record, a win vs. Chiesa and a loss to Ferg.

    This is the 4th (Varner, Ferg, Khabib) decorated wrestler Barboza will face, he has gone 0-3 so far.

    Lee has never faced this level of Muay Thai before.

    Both men have only won coming off loses so neither have had a 2 fight losing streak.
    Barboza:
    Loss to Varner
    Martins: TKO
    Loss to Johnson
    Felder: Dec
    Loss To Ferg
    Pettis: Dec

    Lee:
    Loss to Al
    Ronson: Split Dec
    Loss to Santos
    Escudero: Dec

    They share 1 common opponent; Tony Ferguson who submitted both men. Barboza in the 2nd and Lee in the 3rd.

    This is Edson's 3rd fight in NJ, he holds a 2-0 record there (Dunham, Njokuani). For Lee this marks his 2nd trip to the garden state, where he holds an 0-1 record.

    With a win Barboza can move into a tie for 7th all time with 14 UFC wins and continue his dream to become UFC Lightweight Champion.

    It's the

    Kevin Lee has already headlined 3 card.

    Freaking African-Chinese privilege.

    Barboza got this. Lee is going to gas again and Barboza will get the TKO, my guess in the third.

    I think Lee wins this in the first round, either by tko from mount or he gets the back and sinks in a choke.


    If it gets past the first couple rounds I think barboza can start stuffing some takedowns and get a knockout on the feet, but I'm leaning towards lee in this one.

    Thanks for the facts TS

    Great fight for sure , I'm still going with Lee even with the tough weight cut .
    TBH I would hate to see either guy lose as I like both fighters but I guess at least if Lee wins he hasn't faced Khabib yet so it's a fresh match up for the championship in the future (as long as he can make weight of course )

    I’m honestly on the fence about who wins this, but this has great potential. I’m gonna say Barboza but I’m just flipping a coin.

    I've never seen anyone want to be broke and ghetto as Kevin Lee. All his pictures are of him with a good family and good schools but he tries to act like a thug.
