Kevin Lee extended his winning streak to five, tonight at UFC Fight Night 112, but the win has the controversial asterisk attached.
In round one, Lee worked his way to the back of Chiesa and sunk in a deep, rear-naked-choke. It looked like Chiesa was likely done, but referee Mario Yamasaki stopped the fight before the latter tapped out. Chiesa vehemently protested the stoppage, but the bout was ruled in Lee’s favor.
