Kevin Lee Posts Statement, Believes “Best Performances” Are Still Ahead
By FCF Staff
Kevin Lee incurred his fourth loss in five fights on Saturday night. But, the former lightweight contender’s still confident his career’s best days are ahead.
At UFC Vegas 35, Lee was fighting for the first time since March, 2020, and it also marked the first time he had competed at welterweight since 2019. Lee was outscored by Daniel Rodriguez, however, and lost the bout via unanimous decision.
Since then, the 28-year-old Lee shared out the statement below.
Didn’t have a good performance this last time out but honestly after 500 days away and multiple surgeries I’m proud of what I was able to do. I tried climbing a very tall mountain and this was just another speed-bump on the way. My best performances are ahead of me and I know that. I don’t care if I have to bump my head to get there I won’t stop until I figure this shit out. I’m still competing with the best in the world and won’t hang my head just yet. If you have something negative to say fuck you from bottom of my heart. Fuck all the hate yell can burn in hell. And thank you to everyone who has reached out with love. I’m not done yet. Not at all.
Lee’s (18-7) last victory took place in November, 2019, when he KO’d Gregor Gillespie.
