Edson Barboza Vs. John Makdessi will be a fight between two of the more dynamic strikers in the UFC’s Lightweight Division. It is taking place in Las Vegas, Fourth of July weekend, at UFC 162.

Makdessi currently rebounded from a two fight losing streak against Anthony Njokuani and Dennis Hallman. He’s now on a two fight winning streak after defeating Sam Stout and Daron Cruickshank. Makdessi’s career highlight was a third round spinning back fist knock out at UFC 129 against Kyle Watson.

Barboza was thought to be a true contender in the Lightweight division, after defeating Ross Pearson and Terry Etim. His third round spinning back kick, displayed at UFC 142 against Etim, was a highlight that the UFC still acknowledges today. His momentum came to a halt after losing to former WEC Lightweight Champion Jamie Varner last May at UFC 146. He has since bounced back from that fight after defeating Lucas Martins at UFC on FX 7 in Brazil.

    Should be good! Edson Barboza has made statement after statement with his performances and this will be no different! Mark my words!

    • Definitely making the whole card look appealing for UFC 162. 😉

        Absolutely, the other thing about Barboza is that he is really down to earth and very humble.
