ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. – Unless the UFC decides to implement a 165-pound division, don’t expect Kevin Lee to change weight classes after coming in heavy for the UFC Fight Night 128 main event. Lee (17-3 MMA, 10-3 UFC) earned a fifth-round TKO of Edson Barboza (19-6 MMA, 13-6 UFC) in Saturday’s FS1-televised headliner at Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, N.J. The win was somewhat marred, however, because “The Motown Phenom” came in one pound over the contracted 156-pound lightweight limit. Although it officially marked the first time he’d missed weight, Lee also struggled to hit the limit in his previous fight against Tony Ferguson at UFC 216 in October. Lee has repeatedly stated his desire to see the promotion create a division between lightweight and welterweight.
