    Is going to look like Rocky IV

    Khabib will be surprised and blinded by James Browns stunning rendition of Living in America

    Kevin Lee will kill a Minotaur on the way to the boxing ring dressed like George Washington

    Khabib wins inside of two rounds

    Thoughts?

    Good fight.

    I think Lee is the worst stylistic matchup for Khabib.

    Kevin is like a more athletic Khabib with better striking. The big thing in that fight is who can pressure who and get the takedown.

    Cliffs:

    -Khabib's grappling > Lee's
    -Barboza is not a useful litmus test
    -Khabib's striking has improved and Lee has shown vulnerability to jabs

    A very big strong wrestler, yes.

    If Khabib can't get Lee down, I think Lee has better stand up.

    I like to see this match up than dustin fighting him. It's just such an interesting match up. I can see Khabib landing a few opening round take downs but then Kevin stuffing it and even possibly landing a few takedown of his. Make it happen.

    So you're telling us Kevin Lee is going to die in the octagon?

    If he does, the training montage will pale in comparison to the original for sure!

    I know fighters grow and improve, but I found it hilarious how Kevin Lee fans were trashing Khabib's performance against Iaquinta when Lee lost to Iaquinta.

    even as a poirier fan, i'd rather see lee vs. khabib at this point.

    poirier-alvarez can handle their unfinished business.

    Khabib has a better chin than Lee.

    Lee is Khabib Lite.

    It would be competitive for a round and then Lee would quit.

    He's one of the 3 good matchups for Khabib, others being Conor and Tony, and I'd watch all 3 matchups.

    So yeah, call Dana, let's set this up.
