Kevin Lee and Edson Barboza took turns hitting a liberty bell with a hammer. Ok.
I guess this is how things are done in the City of Brotherly Love. UFC lightweights Kevin Lee and Edson Barboza will be fighting each other at Fight Night 128 in Atlantic City. Last night they were some 100 miles away in Philadelphia at a 76ers game. They stood at center court and took turns hitting a bell with a hammer before posing in the classic face-off.
The two lightweights are coming off of difficult losses, to the two men set to meet for the Lightweight Title. Kevin Lee was defeated by Tony Ferguson at UFC 216 while Khabib Numragomedov defeated Barboza at UFC 219. They are both outstanding fighters and the winner of this fight could very well once again be in line for a title shot.
Fight Night 128 takes place April 21st, 2018. The fight card can be seen here.
