VIDEO: Michael Chiesa, Kevin Lee Brawl At Press Conference

||

Things got heated at the UFC Summer Kickoff press conference on Friday night, with lightweights Michael Chiesa and Kevin Lee coming to blows after words got heated.

Lee was discussing the pair’s upcoming bout at UFC Fight Night 112 on June 25 in Oklahoma City, when he briefly mentioned Chiesa’s family.

“He’s gonna headline because of me,” Lee said about the headlining bout. “After that, he’s going back to the prelims. But I just hope he shows up, because I know his momma’s got tickets.”

That’s when Chiesa flipped his lid and busted out the “don’t talk about my mom” line.

Chiesa charged Lee, before he was met with a straight right hand and the two men were eventually separated by security.

That’s one way to sell a fight.

If you weren’t excited about Chiesa vs. Lee at UFC Fight Night 112 before, there’s certainly now some added intrigue.
