Former interim UFC lightweight title challenger Kevin Lee is the latest name who has offered to fight Conor McGregor after his bout with Dustin Poirier has seemingly fallen through — this and much more on Tuesday's social media roundup.
Kevin Lee offers to fight Conor McGregor in July
Yesterday, Conor McGregor tweeted that he would not be fighting Dustin Poirier anymore after Poirier revealed that McGregor and his team did not follow through with the $500,000 donation to Poirier's charity, The Good Fight Foundation which they had originally promised in the lead-up to their second fight earlier this year.
McGregor also tweeted that the reason why Poirier and his charity did not receive the money is that McGregor and his team were not given any evidence or plans as to where the money would go and what it would be spent on.
After this news broke, a number of fighters offered to step in and fight McGregor in the summer, one of those fighters was Kevin Lee.
Lee posted the following tweets to Twitter.
I can be ready by July 10th— Kevin MTP Lee (@MoTownPhenom) April 12, 2021
Lee has not fought since he lost to Charles Oliveira by submission in early 2020.
Although Lee has not fought in over a year, he still remains in the lightweight rankings.

Mike Perry is not buying Darren Till's kind words
After Mike Perry suffered another defeat this past weekend against Daniel Rodriguez, his foe Darren Till posted some kind yet brutally honest words to Perry on his Twitter account.
See Till's tweets to Perry below.
Got so much time & respect for Perry— D (@darrentill2) April 11, 2021
But here is the main important factor for me
No team, NO FOUNDATIONS!!!
You need a good solid team around you, who are willing to go to great lengths with you.
And then your coach, I am lucky enough to not just have a coach but as I believe a
true master of all the arts.— D (@darrentill2) April 11, 2021
& as humble and deadly as they come!!
If Perry fancies coming here for a few months I would more than be willing to accommodate him and his family and I’m sure my team would feel the same way
Hope whatever he chooses in life he puts him & family 1st x
It is fair to say that Perry did not at all believe that Till was being genuine.
Y’all thought @darrentill2 was being genuine ?— Platinum Mike Perry (@PlatinumPerry) April 13, 2021
