"I roll everywhere in Vegas solo, it was already putting me on edge about it, so I showed up and did the whole day with a bulletproof vest and people were asking me why. But I left right after the Michelle Waterson fight. It was half fashion, half satire, but a lot of people took pictures and was getting on me about it. I didn’t necessarily know a brawl would break out, I just know that dealing with them Russians, they are so butthurt, they are so emotional, sensitive, I didn’t know what was going to happen. So, dealing with those guys you never really know anything. They are a bunch of weak-minded individuals to me, so I don’t really like being around them to be honest. As soon as I was able to get up out of there, I did. I went home, watched the fight around my team anyway and we got to sit back and really analyze it and I feel like it came out better.” H/T Ariel Helwani's MMA Show and MMA Mania

Those are strong words and generalization... I like Lee, but he would get butthurt if someone said bad things and generalizations about Black Americans.. There should be no double standard.

Kevin was worried about the Irish:

 

 

BTW, i dont think kevin is being "Racist"....he is genrealizing based on Nationality

 

he is an American wrestler and theyve always had "a thing" with "The Russians"

 

for "the irish", im sure he was speaking specifically about the irsish form Ireland, as a nation

not Irish americans, etc.

Nothing wrong with generalizing based on nationality. Herodotus did it. Groups have attributes. A group of Buddhist monks is likely to act differently at a party than a group of Hell's Angels. It doesn't mean that it holds true for every individual though.

This..the more Kevin Lee talks, the more I dislike him..he's a good fighter but says things he shouldn't ..he along with many others would cry and whine if Khabib said this about African Americans..so tired of this type of talk only going one way

Where is the comparison? He used the term Russians, speaking of a nationality. 

So the only comparison would be American, not African-American

Yeah but people who generalize black deep down inside know they've met blacks that they can't say bad things about .. have you seen kabibs team and fans .. they are basically the people who cheered after 911

Have you met Conor’s fans. They are the guys who cheered on massacres on civilians in iraq.

Somehow...A win over Chiesa and Barboza  (who hasnt had a decent win since 2016) somehow granted him that.
