Conor McGregor has changed countless “bum’s lives” during his tenure as the biggest box office draw for Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC), as one bout with him means an automatic (and drastic) pay increase.
And let’s not forget you’re guaranteed an instant “red panty night,” as well.
Fighting Kevin Lee will also change your life, though not financially, but mentally and physically, as “The Motown Phenom” says Michael Chiesa’s whole outlook on life will be different after the beating he receives at his hands.
“I just told him the truth. I told him I was going to change his life. And what I mean by that, people think I’m saying that as Conor like, ‘I’m going to get you paid.’ No, on June 26, when he wakes up, he’s not going to wake up the same man he woke up the day before,” said Lee during his appearance on UFC Unfiltered.
“His mindset will change. I literally will change the man’s life. His whole life has been telling him that hard work and dedication will get him where he’s at, and that’s just not true because I am going to beat the brakes off the man.”
Lee went as far as to say he’ll be chilling on the beach drinking his days away while Chiesa grinds it out in the gym only to have his clock cleaned come fight night.
“I don’t give a fuck what he do. He can prepare for the next six months and I can sit on the beach drinking vodka, and I will still beat the fuck out of him and it’s going to change his life,” concluded the feisty scrapper.
Lee and Chiesa are set to headline UFC Fight Night 112 on June 25 from inside Chesapeake Energy Arena in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.
“Maverick” got a taste of what to expect come fight night as Lee decked him with a clean right hand during the UFC Summer Kickoff press conference (see it here) after Kevin touched a nerve by bringing his mother into the trash talk.
