FFC 38: Keith Lee Faces Chris Johnson in Bantamweight Bout
By Press Release
Final Fight Championship 38 hits the Fight Dome in Las Vegas on June 20th, with a stacked fight card to be announced in the coming days. Elite prospect Keith Lee (3-3) looks to make a statement in his hometown as he makes his long awaited FFC debut against Chris “The Jungle” Johnson (7-9).
The younger brother of MMA star Kevin, twenty-two year old Keith Lee will look to make an impact on his promotional debut. Lee’s record can be one easily overlooked, despite his only three losses coming by way of decision. His recent loss under the BRAVE banner in Morocco last year was a controversial one, with Keith Lee hoping to build a name for himself, competing in his hometown of Las Vegas for the first time as a professional.
For records that aren’t to be overlooked, Chris Johnson endured a tough start to his professional mixed martial arts career amassing a 1-6 record in just over two years. The American bantamweight then took over eighteen months out of competition and came back a different animal, picking up a 6-3 record since returning to the sport. Johnson is a busy competitor, having already tasted victory twice since the end of April.
It proves to be an outstanding start to the FFC 38 fight card, with more bouts to be announced in the coming days. Can Keith Lee follow in his brother’s footsteps to the upper echelons of the sport? Or will Chris Johnson produce an upset to put his name under the lights in Las Vegas? We will find out on June 20th!
The 2019 season has proven to be an devastating one so far, with a 75% finish ratio amongst kickboxing, boxing and mixed martial arts bouts in this calendar year.
