    I think they just wanted to use FKL's name thinking he wouldn't accept such a low ranked opponent
    Then when FKL accepted they went running

    No one ducked anyone. According to Lee the UFC didn't want to make that fight.

    Wait a tic.

    Lee and Islam talked a lot of smack back and forth through December. They both say they wanted it. Lee suggests UFC didn't want it.

    In January, Lee was booked to fight Oliviera. In February, it's rumored that Islam may have a fight booked.

    And armed only with those facts and rumors, you concluded Islam ducked Lee?!?

    No offense, but that's fucking nonsensical.

    Please provide proof.

    Previously my view has been that both guys agreed to fight eachother but the UFC refused, because they felt Lee must have a higher ranked opponent.

    Islam says he was never offered a contract to fight Lee https://www.lowkickmma.com/islam-makhachev-denies-being-offered-contract-to-face-kevin-lee/

    Lee said in an interview that he wanted the fight, Islam wanted the fight, but the UFC refused it. (I didn't find the source for this yet but I can provide it later if you request it)

    I don't see how Islam would make tweets like this over and over and then duck

    Lol nah I try not to feed trolls

    If Islam and Gillespie is more than just a rumour I'll still be excited for that fight.

    Fighter Kevin Lee said in his latest interview that UFC wanted to save him vs Islam for another card because UFC 249 was already stacked enough...and instead they wanted him vs Oliviera for the Brazil main event.

    Islam's dagestani brethren would not forgive him if he lost to jabroni Lee.

    You are not well informed.

    Even Lee said it was not the case. UFC didn't wanted the fight. They wanted Lee to headline a Brasil card vs local hero Oliveira.
