Kevin Lee suffers 55 second loss in UFC return Rinat Fakhretdinov Highlights

Former interim lightweight title challenger, Kevin Lee has kicked off his second tenure under the UFC banner in less than ideal circumstances, suffering a stunning 55-second guillotine choke loss to Rinat Fakhretdinov in their featured preliminary bout at UFC Vegas 76.

Lee, a former interim lightweight title challenger under the banner of the UFC, made his second Octagon bow in tonight’s welterweight scrap with the highly-touted, Fakhretdinov — immediately facing adversity in the opening exchanges.

Staggered and dropped following a massive right-hand shot from Fakhretdinov, Lee fell into a guillotine choke attempt from the former — who managed to stop the previous interim title chaser inside just 55-seconds of the very first round, chocking Lee unconscious with referee, Herb Dean calling a halt to the matchup inside the opening minute.
