Kevin Lee Says UFC Rankings Are Meaningless

Kevin Lee isn’t worried about where he sits in the UFC’s rankings, because they’re meaningless in his eyes. Lee spoke with MMAjunkie about the rankings and more in new interview. Highlights are below:

On his #7 ranking: “It don’t really matter. Like, I don’t see even why other fighters are putting … them rankings, they don’t matter. Y’all make the rankings. I don’t give a f*ck about the rankings. The only thing everybody above me in this division got on me is some years, is some time. That’s it.”

On the UFC ranking system: “When you look at the rankings, they don’t mean nothing. Some of these dudes that’s in the top 25, top 30, they’ll beat any of the guys in the top five. They got Nate Diaz, who’s got plenty of losses, in the top five. It don’t make sense. They got Justin Gaethje, who only got one (UFC) fight against … apparently beating Michael Johnson in this game is really something, because you got Khabib up there at No. 1, and you got Gaethje with one fight up above me. The rankings don’t really mean s**t. You could say I’m No. 7. You could say whatever you want to say. I think I’m No. 1, and I’m just going to prove it on October 7th.”
