Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) lightweight contender Kevin Lee was making the media rounds following his submission win over Michael Chiesa last night at the UFC Fight Night 112 mixed martial arts (MMA) event on FOX Sports 1.
Watch the controversial finish here.
During his post-fight media obligations in Oklahoma City, “Motown Phenom” got into a televised tiff with top-ranked division contender Tony Ferguson, who has nothing to do these days but wait for Conor Mcgregor, since Khabib Nurmagomedov is off doing ... whatever it is he’s doing.
“I don’t even know what a DDT is, I think that’s a WWE move,” Lee said when Ferguson asked him about landing a pro wrestling move. “I’m pretty sure I’m the one that lifted him in the air, so I don’t see how he’s slamming me when I’m putting him on my shoulder. Can we put a real journalist on?”
DDT was made famous by Jake “The Snake” Roberts, in case anyone cares.
“You’re just like Al Iaquinta,” Ferguson fired back. “I can’t understand anything you say. Everything you’re saying is all just a bunch of hoopla. You need to get in line. You need to take a ticket and you need to bleed a little bit. You need to go through guys like Edson Barboza, Rafael dos Anjos. You’re just barely breaking into this whole thing.”
Lee (16-2) is now the winner of five straight and will likely break into the division top 10 (see it) with his win over “Maverick.” For complete UFC Fight Night 112 results click here.
