New, comments

Gregor Gillespie and Kevin Lee faced each other in a Lightweight clash tonight (Sat., Nov. w, 2019) at UFC 244, which took place inside Madison Square Garden in New York City, New York.

Lee opened the bout with a long jab and a pair of left hooks. Gillespie answered with a right hand. Lee stuffed the first takedown attempt. The two traded jabs. Good jab connected for Gillespie. Hard right hand answered by Lee. Clean uppercut connected for Gillespie, followed by a right hook. Simultaneous jabs landed again. Lots of boxing in the pocket for the first two minutes, and both men landed. Gillespie feinted and landed his jab well. Cross-hook connected for Gillespie. Out of nowhere, a perfect high kick from Lee crashed into the jaw of Gillespie who fell into a deep sleep immediately!

These two traded hard shots from the first bell, but it was Lee’s kicks that ultimately decided the outcome.

Result: Kevin Lee defeats Gregor Gillespie via knockout at 2:47 of round one
