2017-10-07, great fight between Tony Ferguson and Kevin Lee
: it gets three stars.
The Tuf 13 tournament winner Tony Ferguson entered this fight with a professional mma record of 22-3-0 (77% finishing rate) and he is ranked as the No.3 lightweight in the world (currently the #1 in this division is Conor McGregor). ‘El Cucuy’ Ferguson suffered his last defeat when he faced Michael Johnson in 2012, since then he has collected nine consecutive victories beating Landon Vannata (4-stars fight, Ferguson vs Vannata) and Rafael dos Anjos in 2016 (=dos Anjos vs Ferguson).
His opponent, Kevin Lee, has an official record of 16-2-0 (56% finishing rate) and he entered as the No.7 in the same weight class. He lost to Leonardo Santos in 2015 but then he has won five bouts defeating Francisco Trinaldo (=Trinaldo vs Lee) and Michael Chiesa in 2017 (=Chiesa vs Lee). Tony Ferguson vs Kevin Lee, main event of Ufc 216, is valid for the interim UFC lightweight title. Watch the video and rate this fight!
