Former UFC lightweight interim title challenger Kevin Lee has had plenty of trouble making weight at 155 pounds. After struggling with his weight cut and the health issues and performance issues which botched weight cuts give rise to, “The MoTown Phenom” finally completed his move up to the welterweight division. In his debut welterweight fight, he took on the former UFC lightweight champion Rafael dos Anjos. Now it is being reported that after his defeat against RDA, Lee has been hospitalised!
Lee lost the main event fight against RDA at UFC Fight Night: dos Anjos vs. Lee via submission due to an arm-triangle choke in the fourth round.
The news about Lee being transported to a hospital was revealed by his manager himself to journalist Aaron Bronsteter. It was later further confirmed by Ariel Helwani.
