The former UFC lightweight champion Rafael dos Anjos will soon be taking on the former UFC interim lightweight title contender Kevin Lee at UFC Fight Night 152. However apparently, Lee wasn’t always the first choice for the UFC matchmakers to pair against dos Anjos. RDA recently revealed that he was initially offered a fight against MMA superstar Nick Diaz.

In a recent interview given to MMA Junkie, RDA revealed that he was offered a fight against Nick Diaz. However, the fight failed to materialize and then he was later offered a bout against Lee, which he did accept. Here’s what he had to say:

There were some other options like Ponzinibbio, Masvidal and even I got called and they told me that, “Hey, Nick Diaz is might be interested in a fight with you,” but things didn’t work out. And then the only final name that they throw up on me was Kevin.

He is a tough contender coming up from the lightweight division and I don’t know I can’t sit around waiting for the perfect fight. You know fighters gotta be active. I don’t have any injuries holding me back and I wanna be active, I wanna fight you know.









Kevin Lee much happier without having to cut weight leading up to RDA fight
