Justin Gaethje vs. Kevin Lee
Although Justin Gaethje suffered his first professional loss last night, his stock likely won’t fall too much given how entertaining the fight was and how entertaining of a fighter he is.
Moving forward, a bout against No. 8-ranked Kevin Lee could make sense.
Lee is coming off of submission loss to interim titleholder Tony Ferguson, but prior to that, he had won five consecutive fights. He’s an entertaining personality and a talented fighter and if he wants to stay at 155 pounds, he could remain a contender.
With both men coming off losses, this would be a good chance for both Gaethje and Lee to get back on track.
