Four-and-a-half months later, Vaughan Lee is still buzzing over what was by far the biggest win of his career.

In February, Lee fought for the first time outside his native England, going into hostile territory to fight Japanese legend Norifumi Yamamoto at UFC 144 in Japan – and he submitted "Kid" in the first round.

The win was so big, Lee on Monday told MMAjunkie.com, that he's already willing to make it a career calling card.

"It's just amazing. If I don't win another fight the rest of my life, I've still got that to hold onto," Lee said. "To submit Kid Yamamoto in Japan is the best thing ever."

And with that quote, any feeling I had of Lee upsetting Dillashaw went away.

Given my track record as of late, that means Lee will win

There's a lot riding on Dillashaw with this fight Playground wise. I hope he pulls through.
