Kevin Lee started off a streak of three straight submission victories with this second-round finish of Magomed Mustafaev at Fight Night London in 2016. Next, he faces Edson Barboza in the Fight Night Atlantic City main event on April 21.
Barboza (19-5) is coming off a decision loss to newly crowned lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov and plans to get right back into title contention with a win over Lee. Lee (16-3) was submitted by former interim titleholder Tony Ferguson in his last outing. One will move toward a title shot while the other will drop down in the congested 155-pound ranks.
