    Ive been wondering this for a while now. So how did 'Fighter' Kevin Lee get his nickname?
    Troubled childhood? Having to fight through adversity (and possibly racism) in his youth? Or is it his actual name?
    It seems to be a sensitive topic for him too since I couldnt find much info on it and he never seems to mention it.

    I don't think that's actually his nickname, it's just common convention because of all the other Kevin Lees it's hard to know which one you are talking about sometimes.

    I couldn't fight a thread about this so sorry if it has been done but seriously wtf.

    Why is he calling out a guy who was not even ranked before last week-end, when he is still ranked #8? Also, wasn't he top 5 like forever?

    Just wonder how that makes sense for him.

    I dont know if I'm the only one, but Islam hasn't looked like a world beater to me. I dont get the hype.

    Well, he's always said he wanted to fight Khabib. Since he's nowhere near a title shot he's gotta settle for Khabib Lite. Sugar free.

    Still gassing after moving-up and being easily beaten at his own strength by RDA killed everything that was left of Lee's hype. Islam is adequately ranked for him.

    Islam is on a win streak while Lee hasn't won a fight since beating Barboza IIRC. When you're on a losing streak it makes sense to fight someone ranked lower than you but who has more momentum.

    It’s a ballsy calm out, IMO. Super tough opponent that’s relatively unknown.
