With the withdrawal of Khabib Nurmagomedov, the 155-pound division of the UFC it has been left completely open.
After submitting to Justin gaethje in the stellar of UFC 254, the Russian, motivated by the death of his father, Abdulmanap, and a promise he made to his mother, he proceeded to announce his retirement from the sport, leaving the division without a champion.
Although it has not yet been scheduled, it is quite likely that the title is at stake for the rematch between Conor McGregor Y Dustin Poirier, in plans for January 21, 2021. This would leave other contenders like Gaethje in limbo, Tony Ferguson and even the newcomer, the ex-champion of the Livianos de Bellator, Michael Chandler.
Outside of that select group, and almost without any starting aspirations, the former interim belt challenger, Kevin Lee, believes that it is the perfect time for a rematch with ‘El Cucuy’.
“Dustin and Conor are going to have their revenge, so let’s fight again, @TonyFergusonXT.”
Precisely since losing to Ferguson in the UFC 216, Lee has fallen into a pothole from which he has not been able to get out. Number ten in the 155-pound standings, the Detroit native has a 2-3 record in his last five Octagon appearances, with a third-round submission loss to Charles Oliveira in the UFC Fight Night Brasilia like his most recent fight.
Ferguson, meanwhile, has not fought since being finished by Gaethje in the fifth round in the star of the UFC 249 in May of this year.
