Riddell is an exceptional fighter, but we expect the ‘pre Lee’ Gillespie to show up with a chip on his shoulder determined to make up for that spotlight reel knockout. Riddell is among the most polished strikers in the division with a robust kickboxing background and he is solely getting better training with the likes of Israel Adesanya and Alex Volkanovski. That mentioned, it will depend on how Gillespie turns up mentally. Gregor Gillespie (13-1) ghosted on all of us after his final battle. He a lot prefers taking himself off in his fishing boat to interacting on social media, however he went firmly off the radar after suffering a breath-taking knockout courtesy of Kevin Lee.
It was surprising as it was so violent and one thing Lee has by no means pulled off earlier than. It also came after Gillespie dominated completely everybody that stepped in his path. He was thirteen-zero before the loss with six UFC fights finishing 5 of them including a submission over Vinc Pichel and knockouts over Jordan Rinaldi and Yancy Medeiros.
