The former UFC interim lightweight title challenger Kevin Lee is targetting undefeated fighters who still have zero losses to their record.
Lee who has been on a recent losing streak has seen his career go slightly down the hill. Thus, he is looking to get back to winning ways by taking on the undefeated Gregor Gillespie at UFC 244. Here’s what the told BJ Penn.com about taking on undefeated fighters:
It is a crazy risky fight, it really doesn’t make a whole lot of sense. For any manager to look at it, they would say don’t take this fight. For me as a fighter, these are the fights I kind of want. He is really dangerous, he can make the fight really boring even if you do beat him. As you said, a lot of casual fans are going to be watching this card and it is up to me to put on a statement. There was too much-unfinished business at lightweight to not go back. I didn’t necessarily know it was going to be this fast, to be honest with you, but, once the timing worked out… now was the right time and the last fight I learned a lot.I am gunning for 0s at this point. Khabib has an 0, I’m gunning for that one, Gregor has an 0, I’m going to get that one first. This one is huge, no one has figured Gregor out yet. He is one of the best wrestlers, I mean he would be in the Olympics if it weren’t for Jordan Burroughs is in his weight class. I feel like once I go out there and show what I can do to him, it will show what I can do to the rest of the lightweights.
