“Motown Phenom” Kevin Lee was originally scheduled to make his comeback fight at the glorious UFC 264 card against welterweight Sean Brady. The bout has been rescheduled to an August 28th UFC event.
This Thursday, UFC officials announced that the canceled bout between Kevin Lee and Sean Brady will take place on a new date. The Motown Phenom was scheduled to make his comeback after a year-long hiatus due to injuries. He was ready to try his luck in the welterweight division. Unfortunately, Lee once again fell prey to injury and the fight was removed from the UFC 264 card.
The UFC August 28th event officially does not have a location or venue yet. But it is most likely to be held at UFC Apex in Las Vegas like all the other Fight Night events during the pandemic situation.
Kevin Lee will be fighting for the first time since 2020
The Motown Phenom has not fought in the UFC ever since his loss via submission against the new champion Charles Oliveira in 2020. First the fighter from Detroit had to undergo a surgery due to torn ACL in one knee. Soon another surgery followed in the other knee. He has a record of 18-6-0 in his MMA career. Lee will look to get back to the winning charts.
As far as his opponent is concerned, Sean has comparatively less experience inside the octagon to Kevin. But Brady has the edge over Lee in the upcoming fight given welterweight is his natural weight class. He is coming off a win via submission against Jake Matthews at UFC 259. The welterweight also has a record of 14-4-0 in his career.
