High ranked UFC lightweight Kevin Lee has run into a bit of a tough zone lately. He is currently on a two fight losing streak and has been facing weight cutting issues. Lee has now revealed that all this had made Lee lose his love for the sport but he has been making adjustments to get his head back on track.
Lee revealed in a recent interview to MMA Junkie that he has been making a lot of adjustments lately to rediscover his passion for MMA and to get back to winning ways. Here’s what he had to say:
I kind of took my eyes off the prize a little bit if I’m just being honest with myself. That’s why having (Zahabi) and having that mentor and having somebody who’s already been there and done that with and who’s been through these things and can kind of see that for me.
Instead of just going through it and bumping my head and trying to learn on the other end. I think that’s why that’s going to be really pivotal. Me gunning for that spotlight and gunning for the shine, I focused on that a little too much and lost my love for the game. Now I’m trying to shy away from it and then fall back in love with the actual fight part of it.
