    Because he knows hes a bad match up for him. He wouldnt be able to take Lee down and his hands are 100 percent better then khabibs. I can see why khabib would want to fight strikers because when he fights grapplers, he looks bad but still manages to wedge it out. Discuss

    Heck Kevin Lee could decide to take Khabib down at will if he felt like it, Khabib has shown relatively weak TDD.

    Khabib cant fight everyone at the same time. Kevin will get his chance.

    Did Kevin Lee call Khabib out?

    Did Khabib even mention anything on fighting or not fighting Kevin Lee?

    Or are you talking out of your ass?

    What is Lee ranked currently?

    I do actually think that Kevins physical strength and wrestling pedigree can test Khabib.

    He's been taken down 3 times in 10 fights. 2 of those times he immediately locked up submissions

    Isn't Kevin ducking the division by missing weight and calling out GSP?

    Against who? I am interested to see. I can't recall him getting taken down once in his last 3 fights?

    You should never get a title shot after missing weight

    Ever

    For any reason

    Maybe because Ferguson/Alvarez vs Poirier winner are more deserving? Lee's only good win is Barboza, who Khabib beat up 3 months before.

    Yeah.. these were 5 years ago. Apparently this guy thinks that takedown defense can't improve...

    The same reason DC is ducking me.


    Kevin Lee is a joke and a complete waste of time for Khabib.

    5 years ago and Khabib was injured against Trujillo. But hey, Sherbros can never be wrong

    Lee could probably use another fight or two to work his way to the very top. He himself said he wasn't ready against Fergusen.
    I think besides disregarding the potential benefits of working his way up, the weight cut makes him want to use 155 as a stepping stone and then get out
