6 biggest takeaways from UFC Atlantic City, including Kevin Lee's recovery from wobbly legs


What’s worth remembering coming out of UFC Fight Night 128 at Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, N.J.? A few things, actually.

1. Kevin Lee does the dance, resumes the beating, wins the fight

It’s not often you see someone come so close to being knocked out, only to snap out of it in a matter of seconds and go right back to work the way Kevin Lee did. Edson Barboza’s best chance to stage a comeback victory disappeared just that quickly, and when he couldn’t capitalize on it he got his face opened up by the ceaseless assault of Lee.

He seemed to think that should add up to “Khabib time” in the end. Yeah, don’t hold your breath. But for a young fighter still making his way in a tricky division, it’s a very positive step. Lee can dish it, and he can take it. With a little more seasoning, he might be a serious problem for every other lightweight on the roster.
