Fight Night 128 gets a main event, Edson Barboza vs. Kevin Lee

Kevin Lee and Edson Barboza will headline UFC Fight Night 128

Fight Night 128 has a main event and it’s a pretty damn good one. Lightweights Kevin Lee and Edson Barboza will go toe to toe in a highly anticipated¬†clash. The event takes place April 21st live from Atlantic City. The Boardwalk Hall will play host the event that features a co-main event between David Branch and Thiago Santos.

Kevin Lee (16-3) comes into this main event on the heels of a loss to Tony Ferguson in a battle for the Interim Lightweight Title.¬† Prior to that loss, he’d run off a series of five consecutive victories. Kevin Lee brings in a good standup base and has solid wrestling and grappling as well. He’s a very talented fighter and a win here could have him back in the mix for a title shot.

Edson Barboza (19-5) also enters this fight on after a tough loss. He was defeated by Khabib Nurmagomedov at UFC 219 but had three big wins consecutively before that. Edson has to the most dynamic kicks in the division and is a very scary fighter to stand with. He’s long, lean and fast and packs pretty solid power.

This is a great fight for the fans and will launch the winner back into the mix in the Lightweight Division.
