By FCF Staff
It appears as though Kevin Lee and Edson Barboza will be fighting soon, as it’s being reported that the UFC is planning for them to fight April 21st.
The UFC is close to finalizing the contest for the Atlantic City card, according to a report from MMA Fighting.
Barboza (19-5) is coming off a one sided, decision loss to Khabib Nurmagomedov in December. Prior to that the lightweight contender had won three in a row.
Lee (16-3) hasn’t fought since October, when he was submitted by now interim champ, Tony Ferguson. Lee had won five straight prior to the contest.
