    Kevin Lee is on a 1 fight winning streak.

    Conor and Tony are far ahead of him. Kevin needs 2 more wins.

    I don't like Lee's chances in that fight. I actually think khabib would knock him out, he's got a terrible chin.

    I really want to see that fight. Hopefully Kevin can work his way up to it.

    Khabib destroys him on the feet and has him panic wrestling

    On the subject of TDD, Lee's is legitimately not special. He's gotten taken down a fair few times. Plus he is not dangerous on his back. I think people are putting too much faith in Lee. He is a tough fight for sure but he is not this "anti Khabib" that people are hoping for.

    Kevin's a good fighter but not really "elite" ...yet

    So I don't really see him beating khabib maybe cardio he'd have an advantage

    kelvin is 1-1 in his last two fights, and both times he had trouble making weight. in what world is he deserving of a title shot?

    So he gets stopped by Tony and then misses weight in victory over barboza BUT khabib is scared of him? Right.

    Lee lost to Ferguson then failed to make weight in his next fight. He's got some more work to do.

    1. He missed weight his last fight
    2. If #1 wasn't clear enough for you, he is now openly talking about moving to another weight class (albeit one that doesn't exist... 165)
    3. He is 1-1 in his last two / not deserving of a title shot at all
    4. Tony and even Conor are more deserving/ahead of him
    5. If it doesn't go to the ground Khabib can outstrike him on the feet. This "Kevin outstrikes him on the feet" meme is based on no reality whatsoever.

    Other than those multiple reasons, yeah, sure he's ducking the guy for sure.

    Kevin Lee already lost an undeserved title shot 2 fights ago.

    Lee is only coming off 1 win... In what fucking way did you convince yourself that Khabib was ducking Lee?? Please tell.

    Kevin missed weight and that should bump you off the title shot. Although Kevin is clearly the biggest challenge for Khabib right now in the division.
