We’ve heard it before. This is the fight that Kevin Lee is finally going to put it all together and once again he failed to live up to the hype.
Lee was submitted buy UFC veteran and former champion Rafael Dos Anjos in the fourth round of Saturday nights bout.
Lee didn’t look great in the bout for as much as he talked. Lee is a classic example of talking a lot of shit and never backing it up. I keep hearing about how this was going to be his coming out party. Lee finally moved up a weight class and was destined for a breakout performance and yet again it didn’t happen.
Lee lost a lack luster decision to Al Iaquinta in December. Lee talked a big game and as usual didn’t back up what he said in the pre-fight build up. Lee’s last win came against Edson Barboza, Lee got rocked in the fight, but managed to win. Lee was also submitted by Tony Ferguson in a interim title bout. Lee has managed to lose 3 of his last 4 and was knocked out in the fight that he won. Lee’s last 4 fights have come against some of the best fighters in the divisions hes fought and he hasn’t fared well at all. Lee’s hype to this point as been totally unjustified.
At some point Lee has to start backing up what hes saying or he’s going to be a “what could have been” fighter. Lee is still only 26 years old and has a lot of potential, but just can’t put it all together. Lee’s next few fights are going to be critical for the trajectory of his career.
