- Vaughan Lee recently spoke about dropping to flyweight following his fight with Nam Phan on Saturday. Here are the highlights…
On Dropping to Flyweight: "I'm really thinking about going down to flyweight because I've been walking around at like 65 kilograms (143 pounds) for a while now, and I think it's time to ask if I can go down," he said. "I think that's the plan really."
On What it Will Take to Drop: "Eating cleaner," he said. "I tend to enjoy my food. I love eating. But if I have a clean diet, I'll be OK, I think."
On His Mental Preparation: "It's been rocky," he said. "I blame it on myself really. It's my mentality. It's what makes me lose, really. I'm just not believing in myself and not having the confidence in my technique. I'm pretty good in the gym, but in a fight, I tend to lose it sometimes. Sorry, I'm not taking anything away from the guys I've fought. I just think with my ability, I haven't shined the way I should."
