UFC 216 Tony Ferguson vs Kevin Lee Fight Pick & Preview

free ufc 216 ferguson lee fight pick preview
The UFC has been leaking star power lately.  Ronda Rousey…gone! Jon Jones…gone!  Conor McGregor…MIA!  UFC 216 aims to stop that leak and begin the crowning of a new star.  Both Tony Ferguson and Kevin Lee are on the verge of crossing into the casual fan’s radar.  We all know that’s where the big money in sports is and every athlete wants to get there.  A win at 216 is paramount in making that happen. Let’s take a closer look at these two fighters and then I’ll make my fight pick for UFC 216: Ferguson vs. Lee. Take a look at the video for a quick preview.  

Kevin “The Motown Phenom” Lee is coming into UFC 216 with an overall MMA record of 16-2.  He’s on a 5 fight winning streak with the last three all coming via RNC (rear naked choke). Lee has arguably some of the best wrestling in the UFC and probably the best in the division.  His striking improves every fight and he’s been doing a great job mixing it in with his wrestling to set up his wins. 

Tony “El Cucuy” Ferguson has an overall MMA record of 22-3.  Ferguson is riding a 9 fight winning streak and beat former champion Rafael Dos Anjos in his last outing.  Ferguson has a fighting style that keeps his opponents guessing.  His MMA toolbox is huge and he’s not afraid to use every single tool at his disposal.  His aggression overwhelms fighters and his gas tank fuels it perfectly. 

This fight has the elements of a possible fight of the year candidate.  Look for Ferguson to be creative, to take risks, and to unleash his full arsenal of MMA weapons.  Lee will counter with strong wrestling and solid boxing.  But, eventually, the pressure and experience of Ferguson will be too much for Lee.  Ferguson will take over in the later rounds and become the UFC’s interim lightweight champion.
