    How many times has Lee OFFICIALLY missed weight? I know of one instance he had a staph infection, but are there other instances? I mean, you have Khabib who has missed weight and had pulled out of fights multiple times, yet If Conor refused to fight him, it'd be consider ducking..

    Where did u get hes ducking anyone? Kevin lee may be a difficult matchup, but until he deserves a title shot why fight him. Khabib has top contenders and conor to fight. Its like saying dc is ducking blaydes if he fights brock.

    Lee is 1-1 in his last 2 fights. He needs more wins

    He’s not ducking anyone, I agree. That isn’t what either of us are talking about. You posed the question, “Is Lee calling out Khabib?” And the answer to that is yes.

    Whether Khabib is ducking anyone (he isn’t) or whether Kevin deserves a title shot next (he doesn’t) are irrelevant to my response.

    I know this was supposed to be funny but Khabib didn't miss weight before he fought for the title.

    He was only taken down once by Tibau, who has taken down almost everyone he has fought, and stood up right away. And twice by Trujillo, a 4 time All American, who nearly got subbed 3 times.

    None one else has even come close to getting him down. Get your false narrative out of here.

    I also think the majority don't even try to take him down, which helps.

    People have tried. He just stuffs them or reverses them.

    Khabib fought Barboza after missing weight, not for the title

    This is exactly what Kevin should have to do. Win a fight and make weight

    I honestly think Khabib beats Lee everywhere, even on the feet.

    Lee is a legit threat to Khabib. Probably the only one at 155.

    The real question is why are you ducking logic?

    Is Kevin Lee the #1 contender? No (and he even missed weight in his last fight).
    Has he even called out Khabib? No, he seems fixated on GSP atm.

    Kevin's time will come, but Khabib isn't ducking anyone.

    Hell no. Khabib is ahead. Had Lee won the interim belt against Tony, we would’ve seen him fight Khabib. It didn’t happen, he was out of the picture. Needs at least another solid win to get a title shot.
    As far as being a bad match up for Khabib goes, I do think Lee would give him a hard time, but Khabib eventually takes it in the late rounds.

    well Khabib wants to fight Tony, the guy who beat Lee.
    also Lee missed weight in his last fight, so why would he get a shot ahead of tony or the winner of poirier vs alvarez, or GSP or Dolly?
    you're probably an upset dolly groupie trying to hate on khabib
    Lee seems quite desperate, calling out the champ and GSP knowing he won't get any of those fights right now. he needs to make weight and beat another contender, then, if he does, he'll get a second title shot

    Lee hasn't won a fight at LW since Michael Chiesa.
