    The had him doing a little tour in Singapore.




    Which is nice. I used to be a big hater of the guy but he has grown on me.

    He is pretty well articulate (no pun intended, fuck you Woodley) and likeable when he is not selling a fight too. His podcast with Joe was a good one.




    Im have a feeling that the UFC is not booking him against anyone in case Khabib-Colon fells off and they will put him as a contender for the title in that case.

    Khabib Lee would be great.

    Charismatic guy, young and very talented. Not hard to see why he's getting the push.

    He'll be forced to move up to 170 soon. He's a massive weight cutter.

    Living in Las Vegas seems to have some advantages, they have been pushing Chiesa a lot lately too.

    After watching Lee on JRE I like him.

    He's got a good style too, good heavy top game and his striking is improving.

    Handsome too, no homo.

    Plus, he's got some Eastern blood in him, like Benson.

    He is definitely a good fighter and has potential to become champion.

    But Lee is not the guy I would go to for even basic boxing advice lol.

    His cardio is second to none. No-staph Lee has unstoppable pace. Very similar to Covington.

    Lee is way more skilled than Colby. Much much better ground game.
