UFC lightweight veteran Edson Barboza dropping down to featherweight
https://www.bloodyelbow.com/2019/12/31/ ... t-mma-news

Edson Barboza will look to get his career back on track, but in a different weight class.

Following an initial report from Combate, Barboza’s manager Alex Davis confirmed with MMA Fighting that the longtime UFC lightweight striker is going to move down to featherweight for his next bout. Barboza has never competed at 145 lbs, but Davis says the new weight cut “shouldn’t be hard at all. But we will see.”

Barboza (20-8) is coming off a split decision loss in his rematch with Paul Felder at UFC 242. The narrow defeat dropped him to 1-4 over his last five fights, including a knockout against Justin Gaethje and vicious beatdowns from Kevin Lee and Khabib Nurmagomedov.

Over the years, Barboza has produced many highly entertaining fights and highlight-reel knockouts, most notably his flying knee finish of Beneil Dariush and iconic wheel kick starching of Terry Etim. His best run of victories came against Anthony Pettis, Gilbert Melendez, and the aforementioned Dariush.

Barboza’s next fight has not yet been booked.

Mr phil sir. Sir phil mr sir sir.

Getting lit as fuck, watching prospects, booking events and watching fights with you would be an absolute dream job. :tup:

Lets throw in Frag as a third man so we can watch him freak out and yell at fighters we signed who fought in a really boring way after we hired them :lol: :lol:

If anything he should have gone up to 170. Hard to believe he will make 145

It seems like a good idea to get the size advantage until the other guys have a speed and cardio advantage.

Weight cutting to fight smaller manlets is faggyy as hell. Getting fat as fuck and having to cut to make HW when you spent your whole career at LHW is faggy as fuck. Barbosa and Rampage can both eat a bag of dicks.

Fedor's way is the way.
