UFC lightweight standout Kevin Lee (17-3 MMA) is looking to score a fight with mixed martial arts legend Georges St-Pierre this November.

“The Motown Phenom” took to Instagram earlier today where he issued the following challenge to the former two division UFC champion.

“I want this Georges fight. And don’t get me twisted, like it ain’t nothing but respect between me and Georges. Especially coming from this way. But, at the same time I am taking him as a man of his word. He wants the biggest challenge. I want the biggest challenge. So what’s happening? You know, November… Madison Square Garden… New York City… Georges, what you doing?”

Although he did not make light of it in the actual video, Kevin Lee is suggesting that the UFC gets rid of the current 170-pound welterweight division in favor of creating two new divisions at 165-lbs and 175-lbs respectively.

Kevin Lee captioned the above video with the following suggestion for his employer.

October: Khabib vs Conor Mcgregor 155lb title
November: George St Pierre vs Kevin Lee 165lb title
Tyron Woodley vs Colby Covington 175lb title unification

Kevin Lee was most recently seen in action at April’s UFC Fight Night event in Atlantic City where he battered Edson Barboza on route to a fifth-round TKO victory.

Lee has won six of his past seven fights overall, with his lone loss in that time coming to former interim lightweight title holder Tony Ferguson via submission.

As for the Canadian Georges St-Pierre (26-2 MMA), “Rush” has no competed inside the octagon since defeating Michael Bisping via technical submission at UFC 217 this past November.

Following his historic win, Georges opted to vacate his middleweight title after he revealed that he was suffering from ulcerative colitis.
