One of the most prominent fighters of Eagle FC, created by Khabib Nurmagomedov, Kevin Lee signed a new contract with the UFC.
The athlete was fired from the strongest league in the world two years ago, after which he performed quite successfully in the Russian promotion.
Now Lee returns, as he himself put it, to his home with an exclusive contract signed.
"I met with President Dana White and CEO Hunter Campbell and we signed the agreement. I'm grateful to them for welcoming me back into their family, and I'm looking forward to resuming my career," the fighter said.
According to some reports, Lee could make his U.S. promotion debut as early as March.
