Christian Lee Says Thanh Le Has to Clean Out His Division Before Asking for Superfights

“The Warrior” believes his fellow champion hasn’t done enough for a title shot at lightweight. One Championship lightweight titleholder Christian Lee (15-3, 15-3 One) is one of those fighters who best incarnate the concept that MMA athletes are not paid by the minute. With just one decision on his record, the 23-year old champion stopped Timofey Nastyukhin with punches in the opening stanza to score his latest title defense. With that victory under the belt, “The Warrior” has essentially cleaned out his division as he has wins over ranked opponents Nastyukhin, Iuri Lapicus, Saygid Guseyn Arslanaliev and Shinya Aoki. One of the contender who still has to meet the reigning champion is Rae Yoon Ok. While Lee has been challenged by One featherweight champion Thanh Le for a superfight, the 23-year old believes that Ok is the most-worthy contender for a crack at his title at the moment.
