I saw a couple of your films. Listen, you can't fake those moves.

After Cage mentioned seeing Lean battle in London and impressed his skills, Lean replied "I saw a couple of your films. Listen, you can't fake those moves." Cage, smirk, mentions that he has should tell the reporter.

Before the tournament, he participated in the feast and joined Cage, Liu Kang, and Sonya Blade. Lean and Cage expressed shock and discomfort after witnessing Sub-Zero freezing a minion and breaking him into pieces at the beginning of the tournament.
