UFC contender Kevin Lee lost his title fight by way of third-round submission in his lightweight championship bout against Tony Ferguson at UFC 216 in Las Vegas, Nevada.
After the fight, Joe Rogan asked Lee pointblank what it was.
Lee revealed it was staph infection, and he “damn near killed” himself trying to make weight. He also confirmed he was not on medication:
The reaction was pretty expected:
Yeah, this is not a good look for the Nevada Athletic Commission. Not sure how that one slipped by. Hopefully Ferguson is okay after the bout and Lee heals up.
