UFC lightweight contender Kevin Lee states he needs to run it back again with Tony Ferguson when he returns to the Octagon later on this 12 months.
Lee has not competed considering the fact that very last March when he was submitted by Charles Oliveira in the primary function of the final UFC card in advance of the COVID-19 pandemic hit. He experienced double surgical treatment after the combat, and soon after lacking a complete calendar year of action, he’s prepared to return to the Octagon in the coming months. And when he would make his return, he would like to rematch Ferguson.
Talking to SCMP’s Tom Taylor, Lee stated why he wants to combat Ferguson yet again. The two earlier satisfied at UFC 216 in Oct 2017, with Ferguson ending Lee in the 3rd round to capture the interim UFC light-weight title. Four decades afterwards, and with Ferguson and Lee the two struggling to get into the get column, there’s a prospect we may possibly see the rematch.
“Us managing it back again will make a whole good deal of perception from all standpoints, especially when you seem at in which this division is and wherever it is going. A person of us is going to remain and a person of us is heading to leave. Tony Ferguson’s top rated of the listing – I don’t even have a shut second to be straightforward with you,” Kevin Lee explained.
“The Motown Phenom” mentioned that he is hoping to get again into the Octagon nearer to the summer season. Although a location on the UFC’s yearly July 4th weekend shell out-for every-watch card appears appetizing for Lee, he would also be interested in headlining his very own card in June. A five-spherical, non-title rematch towards Ferguson would make perception as a Struggle Night time major event.
“We’re sort of teetering again and forth on no matter if it’s June or July, but I think this summer time seems great. The UFC generally puts on a significant celebration close to July 4, so that initially week of July could possibly perform out properly. If not, possibly June and I can (have) my have card. It all depends on who the opponent is,” Lee claimed.
