On September 10 at UFC 279, lightweights Tony Ferguson and Chinese fighter Li Jinliang will meet in the co-main event.

According to the Chinese, even though Ferguson has been losing all of his fights for several years now, the league still holds him dear while putting many other athletes at odds.

Lee, for example, learned that he was to fight Tony, not from the head of the promotion, Dana White, or at least his assistants, but from the news.

"I got the call about the upcoming fight when I was already watching the news and heard my name. It was kind of frustrating," the Chinese fighter said.

According to him, he was told over the phone that "Tony had agreed to fight" him. However, no one asked Li about anything, he was simply presented with the fact. And even that with a delay.
