  1. It's going to be one helluva fight. See the UFC needs more people like Al Iaquinta. The reason I say that is he is a fighter who believes in his worth and won't fight for pennies on the dollar. Ragin Al was one of the only fighters to openly back Project Spearhead. Sad that endeavor is done now.

  2. This guy keeps talking about holes in somones game when he got dropped by Al and chocked by tony. He has no chin and no heart. Khabib said it best 'kevin lee has very weak heart'. Ever since then, lee has been triggered because the truth stung haha

  3. Tony Ferguson, GSP, Conor McGregor, Max Holloway, Dustin Poirier, Nate Diaz and Brian Ortega are all out here asking to fight Khabib but this guy thinks he's in the running. He's pretty much at the back of the line despite talking about the guy for three years.

  4. I can't believe this fight is happening. I never expected Al to come back and fight. The fight against Khabib bumped his confidence, I think, and the comments by the MMA media on how he went the distance with Khabib, the unbeaten, has gone to Al's head. I don't think Khabib was fighting to his full capacity. Great fight. Looking forward to it.

  5. you tried so hard to make this "big mouth lee" talking bad about khabib..all ufc fighters and organisation except A.K.A team are againt khabib now and that's very clear to everybody. i don't know why? but for sure it is just because he defended the morals that you don't believe in :like his religion and honoring parents. and the main reason is that he beat the shit out of the ufc image(conor macgregor)

  6. Kevin Lee bouta beat tf outta Al !!! Khabib don’t wont no smoke he runnin scared. Kevin Lee too strong for Khabib. Khabib could barely get Conor down. Look what happened when he fought Gleason Tibbou . Khabib loss they gifted him a split decision.

  7. Your skill set maybe improve, but your chin wont. You got dropped by al iaquinta jab, and khabib knocked down the best striker in ufc. I'm not saying these two only factors will decide if you fight khabib, but khabib has a very good chance tko you.

    • Arabian Dream he had fucking staph infection in the tony fight most fighters wouldn’t even make it to the scale and this guy fought Tony’s pace for 2 rounds and still showed no quit. That armbar that tony had would finish most fighters he still reversed it whilst gassed. Then he got caught in triangle. And in the al fight he was 21. What other top fighter gets thrown in with killers when they were 21. Kevin lee now will maul al in the rematch.
