Chiesa vs. Lee to Headline in OKC

The UFC’s first event in Oklahoma City since 2009 now has a main event, as lightweight contenders Michael Chiesa and Kevin Lee collide at Chesapeake Energy Arena on Sunday, Jun. 25.

In previously announced bouts for the FS1-televised card, UFC Hall of Famer BJ Penn continues his comeback with a bout against German powerhouse Dennis Siver, former 170-pound champion Johny Hendricks will attempt to lock up his second win in the middleweight class when he faces dangerous veteran Tim "The Barbarian" Boetsch, Felice Herrig battles Justine Kish, and light heavyweight prospects Josh Stansbury and Jeremy Kimball face off.

Currently ranked seventh at 155 pounds, former Ultimate Fighter winner Chiesa will make his first start since April 2016, and he has been showing the best form of his career, as he’s won three straight over Mitch Clarke, Jim Miller and Beneil Dariush. Las Vegas’ Lee has been quietly putting together an impressive winning streak of his own, but after defeating Efrain Escudero, Jake Matthews and Magomed Mustafaev, it was a March submission victory over Francisco Trinaldo that put the 24-year-old into the top 15.
