Kevin Lee Still Not On Championship Weight, Has 30-Minutes To Lose Remaining Weight

UFC lightweight contender Kevin Lee still hasn't made weight for interim, lightweight title fight at UFC 216.

Word on the streets in Las Vegas is that with 30-minutes left until cut off time, Kevin Lee is still trying to shed his last few pounds to make his championship fight against Tony Ferguson official.

Lee confessed during yesterday’s UFC 216 media day, that he had 19-pounds left to cut, and just 20 hours to do it in.

For UFC championship bouts fighters are not allowed the 1 pound allowance, meaning Lee must hit 155 on the mark, or less, or he will lose his shot at a UFC world title.

UFC 216 goes down tomorrow night from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

Here’s some confirmation of these rumors. There’s still hope though…
