Kevin Lee can’t catch a break as he’s slated to go under the knife for a second time in 2020 because of an ACL tear.
Lee has been on the sidelines due to an injury that resulted in surgery. Back in April, Lee underwent the knife to repair a torn ACL. He has previously stated that the injury didn’t happen in his last fight.
While recovering from the ACL tear in his left knee, he tore the ACL in his right knee. He shared the news on Instagram:

“I hurt it while trying to recover from this one,” Lee explained. “But honestly, I’m not that discouraged about it. I feel like I’ve been on this path for a long-ass time, like last 10 years, and I’ve seen a lot of this sh*t happening. I didn’t know I was going to have it, but I knew for sure it was going to happen. I guess God wants me to have two strong knees, so when I come back, I’m going to f*ck somebody up.”
Lee and Charles Oliveira met in a lightweight bout at the UFC Brasilia on March 14, 2020 from the Ginasio Nilson Nelson in Brasilia, Brazil that aired on ESPN+. In the third round, Lee went for a takedown but Oliveira managed to get a guillotine choke and Lee tapped although Lee disputed it.
