Edson Barboza vs. Kevin Lee will headline UFC Fight Night 128 *POLL*

It sounds like the UFC has its main event for its return to Atlantic City.

Multiple reports today said lightweights Edson Barboza (19-5 MMA, 13-5 UFC) and Kevin Lee (16-3 MMA, 9-3 UFC) will headline UFC Fight Night 128. MMAfighting.com first reported the booking, and ESPN.com has reported it, as well – though UFC officials have yet to make a formal announcement.

UFC Fight Night 128 takes place April 21 at Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, N.J. The main card will air on FS1 following prelims on FS2 and UFC Fight Pass.

Lee will be looking to rebound from a submission loss to Tony Ferguson this past October in the UFC 216 main event. That fight was for the UFC’s interim lightweight title. The setback snapped a five-fight winning streak for the Las Vegas-based fighter, which included four straight finishes and three straight rear-naked choke wins – including two performance bonuses.

Barboza needs to bounce back, as well. The Brazilian striking standout had a three-fight winning streak snapped in December when Khabib Nurmagomedov dominated him for a unanimous decision win at UFC 219. Prior to that, Barboza had decision wins over former UFC and WEC champ Anthony Pettis and former Strikeforce champ Gilbert Melendez, and a bonus-winning flying-knee knockout of Beniel Dariush.

The latest UFC Fight Night 128 card includes:

   Edson Barboza vs. Kevin Lee
   Aspen Ladd vs. Leslie Smith
   Merab Dvalishvili vs. Augusto Mendes
   Magomed Bibulatov vs. Ulka Sasaki
   David Branch vs. Thiago “Marreta” Santos
   Corey Anderson vs. Patrick Cummins
   Siyar Bahadurzada vs. Luan Chagas
   Brett Johns vs. Aljamain Sterling

Good match up for Barboza me thinks. Lee no doubt thinks he can do to Edson what Khabib did, but prior to the Khabib fights Barboza's TTD was solid. Khabib is just a different animal. 5 rounds, I'll take Barboza by sweet ko.

I feel like if Kevin didn't have staph when he fought Tony then he would have won.

Kevin should win this one unless he decides hes a striker on the same level as Edson.

I feel Lee has talked his way up into the upper echelon of the 155 division. Dude has never gone past the 3rd round and his biggest win is Michael Chiesa, a solid win but nothing compared to the resume of other fighters in the division. Barboza by brutal ko to send Lee packing to the WW division.

Barboza's soul was taken by Kalabib so I'd back Lee.

I hope you're right man. Be awesome to see Barboza get back on track with a brutal KO over Lee.
