Jason Lee HS_2014

By Luke Henderson –

Word came down the final week of March that fan favorite MMA fighter, Boston’s own Jason ‘The Dragon’ Lee (6-4), would be returning to the cage in Colorado once more. This time he’ll be facing Jeremy Hart (8-3) at Sparta Combat League’s ARMY VS MARINES V event on April 26. Lee, coming off a win in late 2013, is ready to put on a show at the Budweiser Event Center in Loveland. “I’m very excited to tap into a new promotion and possible a couple of new fans in Northern Colorado,” Lee said. He’s up against a very seasoned and talented fighter in Hart. “From what I’ve seen of Jeremy’s fights, he’s got a lot of heart. We all know I’m born of that fabric,” Lee said.
This fight card is special in that it utilizes as many servicemen as possible on it and promoter Jeff Cisneros gives away 3000 tickets to military members to enjoy the show and while Lee appreciates all the men and women of the armed services do, that doesn’t stop him from getting in a good natured verbal shot at Hart.
“I believe Jeremy was in the Army at one point and while I appreciate his service, I was raised in a Marine Corps family and well, since I was born, let’s just say I’ve known the difference. Semper Fi, do or die!” Lee exclaimed.
Lee has been on the shelf since late 2013 due to a fight falling through and now he’s ready to breakout in 2014. “St. Paddy’s has just passed and boy am I ready to shine in spring time. New life, new blood and I’m promising one hell of a banger on April 26, well…as long as Jeremy’s chin will hold up,” Lee said.
