the ultimate fighter 23 finale

Kevin Lee has put himself on the map with wins in six of his last seven bouts.

Now, Lee wants a rematch with one of those two men to defeat him inside the Octagon.

Friday night at The Ultimate Fighter 23 Finale, Lee picked up a first round TKO victory over Jake Matthews for his sixth career Octagon win.

“Everybody already knows who is next,” Lee said. “Madison Square Garden, November, Al Iaquinta.

“Let’s do it.”

Back in his UFC debut in 2014, Lee suffered a decision loss to Iaquinta. He was making his first appearance inside the Octagon at just 21 years old and has since won six of his last seven.

As for this night, it was all Lee. He scored two takedowns, using the second one to lock in his hooks, flatten Matthews out and pound away until the ref stepped in.

“I can do that to anybody,” he said. “I am one of the best wrestlers in this division. (Matthews) is over-aggressive, young. I knew he would come in hard.”
