Which it did, Saturday night at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. The former Ultimate Fighter victor is expected to unify the belts with McGregor.

Ferguson knew that Lee, who was swinging for the fences with every punch, would eventually wear out. Ducking away, Ferguson narrowly avoided another high kick but couldn't escaped the overhand right.

Above is live video of the event's post-fight press conference which kicks off approximately 30 minutes after the main event between Ferguson and Lee comes to a close (courtesy of the UFC). After the bell sounded, a fired-up Lee blasted Ferguson with another one for good measure.

The victor was expected to challenge the reigning 155-pound champion Conor McGregor to unify the lightweight titles.

Alabama vs. Texas A&M 2017 live stream
Texas A&M is still trying to recover from the monstrous lead they blew against UCLA earlier this season. Saban said Hurts is improving his ability to consider his options when he starts to scramble.

"I underestimated his work from the bottom - the elbows", Lee told Joe Rogan. Ferguson dropped his opponent momentarily.

Popping right back up, Lee wobbled Ferguson against with an overhand right and secured the takedown. Many believe that the interim-title shot he has been given, however, could well be a case of "too-much, too-soon" and in facing Ferguson, he has been pegged to take on perhaps the worst stylistic match-up out there for him right now, with the exception of Khabib Nurmagomedov, perhaps.

Side control from Lee now and he advances to full mount. Ferguson knocks Lee down with a low kick as the off balance Lee is throwing himself. A scramble ensues and Ferguson is on bottom but locks up the rubber guard. With 60-seconds left, Ferguson continued to talk to Lee inside the Octagon before eating a kick to the midsection. Ferguson hurts Lee with a counterpunch and Lee stops his advance.

"This went the exactly way I wanted it to", Ferguson said afterwards. Kevin Lee is a ground specialist and primarily relies on his wrestling to control opponents. No action takes place and Lee allows Ferguson to get up. Lee rebounded in the third with a couple of takedowns, but Ferguson threatened with a deep armbar, followed by a flawless triangle choke that forced Lee to tap. While it appeared to be tight, Lee stepped over and escaped the submission but found himself stuck in a triangle. Lee catches Ferguson with a hard right hand and looks to follow.
