Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) will send Kevin Lee into battle against fellow lightweight title hopeful Charles Oliveira at the upcoming UFC Fight Night 170 mixed martial arts (MMA) event on ESPN/ESPN+, which takes place tonight (Sat., March 14, 2020) inside Nilson Nelson gymnasium in Brasilia, Brazil.
Lee (18-5) was last seen in what may go down as the greatest highlight-reel head kick knockout in promotion history, starching Gregor Gillespie at UFC 244 last November in New York. The victory for “Motown Phenom” validated his move to Tristar gym and snapped a two-fight losing streak.
As for Oliveira (28-8, 1 NC), he can seemingly do no wrong these days, winning six straight fights with six nasty finishes along the way. The knuckleheads charged with the division rankings, however, have no love for “Do Bronx,” leaving him high and dry at No. 13 — a whopping five spots behind Lee.
