Kevin Lee makes bold prediction against Edson Barboza

Kevin Lee makes bold prediction against Edson Barboza

Lee pounded Edson Barboza until blood streamed down his face and won a 155-pound bout when the fight was stopped via TKO in the fifth round. Barboza came out aggressively in the third and landed some nice body kicks before landing a insane spinning heel kick that wobbled Lee.

The momentum was on Barboza's side and he came out firing to start the fourth round, but Lee quickly got his fourth takedown of the fight. Will Barboza come through with another highlight reel KO? "That wheel kick hurt", Lee said about that frightening moment in the third round. Since then Lee has strung together two impressive win streaks, proving victorious in 9 out of 11 contests while solidifying himself as a top contender in the lightweight division. Barboza was just too exhausted to get back to his feet but he showed great heart surviving the round after Lee landed some big hammer fists. Lee was relentless with his pressure game on top as Barboza could only hold on and try to survive until the final round. His biggest challenge came when he absorbed one stiff kick to the face. That forced the referee to pause the action as the doctors were brought in to check on Barboza. Lee was well ahead on the judges' scorecards as well before getting the fifth round finish. "I love you", Edgar said. "I can do it all".

"I feel like I'm gonna fight a better version of Edson Barboza". I can stand with the toughest strikers in the world.




"You folks know what time it is".

Lee got the signature win he needed to remain in the lightweight championship picture and immediately took aim on the division's champ, Khabib Nurmagomedov. "It's Khabib time, baby", he said.

Lee failed to make weight by 2 pounds for the fight, forcing him to forfeit 20 percent of his purse.
