Get this man a fight already. It's ridiculous that a guy that's 5-0-1 in the company (who has a 1st round TKO over a guy fighting for a title this weekend) and doesn't get paid a ton has to be begging for a fight.

Yes Leonardo makes some valid points and hopefully he gets on a card soon; he's got some great credentials too. Maybe UFC doesn't want to push him because he's 37 yrs old?

Does this guy even fight? He fights 1-2 times a year max. He shouldn't be talking about anyone. If the UFC made this fight, guaranteed thousands of people would be saying, who the hell is Leonardo Santos??????? This fight wouldn't have sold for shit. Lee lost to him yea, but he also put together a 5 fight win streak during that time against quality opponents. Chiesa was top 10 when he beat him, don't think Santos has 1 top 10 win on his record.

His reasoning is that it's because UFC won't give him the fights.
But I agree with you that Lee deserved this shot;I've heard some people bitchin that Lee shouldn't have got this chance. Even Ferg basically did.
Lee did help himself out too when he got that live interview with Ferg on Fox or this fight may not have ever happened.
