Lee believes he has the upper hand against Lapilus in many ways. “I have been studying his past fights and also his record on Sherdog (MMA Web site). Most of his wins are from submissions, so we have similar strengths, which means this will be a good match up and we will put on a good show,” Lee said.

“I also think that I have the advantages of better boxing, better jiu jitsu and better wrestling. I am excited to put these to work in the octagon against him.”
