• Sep. 27, 2017
On the surface, a shot at the interim lightweight title against Tony Ferguson may not have been the most obvious next fight for Kevin Lee following his defeat of Michael Chiesa at Fight Night Okalhoma City in June. But for those who watched the post-fight coverage on FS1, Ferguson vs Lee not only seemed more likely, but suddenly became they all wanted to see.
It began innocently enough: Tony Ferguson just happened to be working the analyst desk at FS1 alsongside Karen Bryant, and he asked Lee about hitting Chiesa with a "DDT". Lee didn't take kindly to the question. “I don’t even know what a DDT is. I think that’s a WWE move...Can we put a real journalist on?”
