Kevin Lee just trashed Conor McGregor’s weak baby (except he really didn’t)

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) lightweight contender Kevin Lee, who ramped up his self-promotion after landing his first main event gig, does not go after newborn babies.

Mothers? Yes, but never babies.

So you can imagine how incensed the “Motown Phenom” was to read TMZ and discover that he was quoted as calling Baby Mac a “weakness” for McGregor when in actuality, all he suggested was “Notorious” is less likely to train while on diaper detail.

From Twitter:

I can’t believe those jerks at TMZ. I would never twist a headline just for clicks.

Lee (15-2) will put his four-fight winning streak on the line when he collides with Michael Chiesa (14-2) at the upcoming UFC Fight Night 112 mixed martial arts (MMA) event on FOX Sports 1 on Sun., June 25, 2017, inside Chesapeake Energy Arena in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.
