Can Kevin Lee cut it at welterweight?

Saturday's UFC Fight Night main event has been a long time coming for 26-year-old Kevin Lee.

A lightweight for his entire career thus far, Lee (17-4) will make his welterweight debut against Rafael dos Anjos (28-11) inside Blue Cross Arena in Rochester, New York. The move to 170 pounds could have happened even sooner for Lee because he has struggled to make the cut to 155 in recent years.

It's interesting that this new start at welterweight will come against Dos Anjos, who in many ways is in the exact spot Lee hopes to avoid.
