Former UFC interim lightweight champion Kevin Lee will try his luck with the welterweight division one more time.
“The Motown Phenom” will be returning to the Octagon this upcoming summer at UFC 264 which is scheduled to take place on July 10 in Las Vegas.
Lee, 28, will be fighting the undefeated Sean Brady in one of the Preliminary fights to Dustin Poirier and Conor McGregor 3.
Lee’s first interaction with the 77 kg division was short and unsuccessful. Back in 2019 Lee moved up and faced Rafael dos Anjos, but got stunned and lost via submission.
Brady, 28, is 4-0 since he joined UFC back in October 2019. Sean will be fighting for a second time in 2021, as he defeated Jake Mattwhes in March.
