    Who would win this fight? I know barboza vs gaetje would be an awesome fight too but I really think gaetje can finish lee. I am sure lot of sherdog would love to see the beast I.e JG finish lee like he finished big boy Vick.
    JG has the advantage in terms of cardio, heart, toughness/durability, power and possibly standup too.
    Kevin Lee has better wrestling credentials but JG is no slouch there either. Lee has better grappling, strength, speed and ground game. he has an average chin and poor cardio which always lets him down.

    I really believe Justin would get it done in the 4th or 5th.

    I think Gaethje is a terrible match up for Lee. I would rather see Gaethje vs Barboza. Lee should fight someone lower ranked like Islam or someone in the lower part of the top 10.

    Been saying for awhile thst Justin is probably the worst style match up for lee. Insane tdd + power and an iron jaw.

    Not to mention Justin's pace and cardio.

    Rather see Gaethje vs Iaquinta. Fight would be crazy.

    Islam honestly might ko lee and I think Islam is quite overrated himself. Islam is a terrible matchup for lee.

    when you say pace, what exactly do you mean? just the ability to sustain or maintain pressure for long periods?

    Yeah, I like the match up and think that guys should take a step down in competition level after a loss so it makes sense and Islam is overdue for a top 10 guy.

    I mean the pace at which the fighters expend energy, Gaethje comes forward non stop and doesn't slow much while being a high output fighter. Lee has cardio problems and has average to below average durability while Gaethje is super durable. It's probably one of the worst possible style match ups for Lee at LW.

    Gaethje vs Barboza. Hooker needs to take like a year off.

    IMO Gaethje needs to retire, not because he is not good, but because he is too damaged.

    He's come back well and while he does take a lot of damage in fights I never thought he might die in the octagon. I was worried Hooker might die against Barboza.
