MONTREAL – Few have been more critical and less impressed with UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov than Kevin Lee . But after watching Nurmagomedov submit Dustin Poirier in the third round at UFC 242, Lee (17-5 MMA, 10-5 UFC) no longer believes Tony Ferguson is the one to dethrone the undefeated champ. “I got to be honest: If you asked me before the Poirier fight, I would have been like Tony (Ferguson) is still like a 90 percent chance of winning,” Lee told MMA Junkie. “After seeing what Khabib did to Poirier, I think it’s going to be very hard for Tony to beat him.” Former interim champ Ferguson (25-3 MMA, 15-1 UFC), who beat Lee for that title in 2017, is expected to be next in line for Nurmagomedov (28-0 MMA, 12-0 UFC)
