UFC lightweight fighter Kevin Lee has now planned to move up to the Welterweight division for his fighting future.

UFC: Kevin Lee to undergo ACL surgery, out estimated six months

Kevin Lee has fought both at lightweight and welterweight multiples times in his UFC career and put some good performances. Recently he is facing a downfall in his fighting career and has faced losses, especially at lightweight. Considering that he has now decided to move back to welterweight. He revealed this via Twitter.

“I’m moving to 170lbs for the foreseeable future. Oliveira can have the lightweights we’ll get that back later,” Lee wrote on Twitter.

Kevin Lee calls out Platinum Mike Perry

@PlatinumPerry we fighting July 10 or what @seanshelby @danawhite
Before revealing that he is moving up to welterweight, Kevin had called out Miker Perry for a fight. He asked Perry whether they are fighting on July 10 and also tagged Dana White and Sean Shelby in the tweet.
Kevin last fought against Charles Oliveira at UFC Fight Night 180 in March 2020, where he had to face a sour defeat as he was submitted in the third round by Oliveira. Right after that loss, Kevin had to go through two serious knee surgeries which gave him a long layoff to analyze his fighting future.
Kevin always had issues with his weight and has missed weight a few times in his career. The decision to move up looks perfect for him but he also has to think about the new challenges he has to face in the already stacked welterweight division which is full of fighting veterans, and some up and comer killers.

Mike Perry himself is on a two-fight losing streak and has lost four out of his last five fights. Even after losing fights on regular basis Mike Perry always manages to put on a show for the fans and a fight with a top fighter like Kevin is something Perry wouldn’t shy away from. His last two losses came against the likes of Tim Means and Daniel Rodriguez.
