UFC lightweight Kevin Lee has been having plenty of struggles making weight lately. After a couple of defeats against the likes of Al Iaquinta and Tony Ferguson, in which Lee partly blamed the difficult weight cut, “The Motown Phenom” has finally now decided to move up a weight class to welterweight. In a recent interview, he revealed that he felt much happier this time around because of not having to cut that extra weight.

Lee recently talked to MMA Junkie. In the interview, he revealed that he is in a much better mood before his fight this weekend in the main event of UFC on ESPN+ 10 against Rafael dos Anjos. Here’s what he had to say:

I’m in a little bit better mood, you can probably tell right out the gate. You look back at the old (interviews), I’m about the same weight, but I know I got that big cut ahead of me, which is really unnecessary, I feel like the UFC is slowly taking steps in the right direction on getting rid of this weight cutting. This sport is dangerous enough as it is. It doesn’t make any sense that we’ve got to dehydrate ourselves and put our health at risk and not give the fans and the folks the fight that they should get.

I feel like that’s what I’m going to give them this week with not having to fight the scale before getting in there and having to fight somebody like dos Anjos, and it’s only going to be a benefit.
