‘The MoTown Phenom’ did hint that his promotional debut would come against Diego Sanchez, speaking with Cole Shelton of BJPENN.com he said:

“They spoke to me about Diego Sanchez, so I might go ahead and do that one… The first Ultimate Fighter is known for putting on great fights, he’s going to go out there swinging and you know you’ll get a great fight out of him.” Kevin Lee said. “He’s not afraid to fight anybody, it just makes a lot of sense, it makes sense for him, it makes sense for me. We’ll probably get that one done.”
