I like ur avatar - zab191 For finishing 2nd in Season 3 of The Predictorship Challenge - D4thincarnation To England - -Weltschmerz- 
Default Edson Barboza, Jr.

It was pretty good but i think ive seen better spinning heel kicks. Adlan Amagov's is better imo.

That aside, im proud to have been a Barboza fan since his fight with Jose Figueroa.

EDIT - Wonder if UFC will match Edson with Gomi now. Can't recall why that fight didnt happen.

Watch the kick slowed down 500 times. It's a sick spin hook kick, It looks like Barboza disguises it as a back kick to the body'cos Etim guards his mid section, Barboza hooks it around and connects clean on Etim's unprotected face.

http://deadspin.com/5876227/

I reckon Pearson beat Barboza in his previous fight, but Etim had no chance, I reckon he wasn't throwing much at all n he looked scared of Edsons power and personally I'm saying the other fights were poor as f*** for this one to be given fight of the night, Lol Etim gets a $60,000 bonus for getting knocked the f*** out.
My money's on Edson becomin UFC Lightweight champion in 2012 or 2013.

I love Edson but i don't know how he will fare with some of the other Lightweights. That division is a shark tank. Obviously he is dangerous as **** in the stand up but how does he fare on the floor?

I reckon Takanori Gomi gives him a real fight despite being past his sell by date. I think his next opponent will be Nate Diaz tbh.

I also watched the Adlan Amagov spin kick KO again...i still think thats better but Barbosa felled Etim like a damn tree.

I dunno man, did you watch the video I posted fam? the knockout slowed down 500 times lol.
I reckon Edson will go on to tear up the Lightweight division no question I mean, Pearson was puttin it on him all night in their fight and i personally think Pearson has the heavier hands of the two, but Edsons speed and combos are just insane and his counter punching won him the fight (in the judges eyes, not mine) with Pearson, Lit him up man. Noone drops Pearson but Barboza did!
I reckon the shorter and musclier fighters down at Lightweight fair better than the taller skinnier geezers, Etim is over 6 ft tall and skinny as f***, real skinny man, but if he puts on weight and muscle he'll have to go up to Welterweight, could be a good move for him i dunno?
Next up for Etim i think he should fight Yves Edwards! Or he could fight boys down in the lower echolons of the division like Sotiropoulos (Sick fight), Cody Mckenzie who he will beat, Sam Stout who he's beaten before or even Gomi, I reckon he can beat Gomi if Nate beat him so easily enit, the ground and submission game is Etim's big strength!!

Edson has sick takedown defence as he showed against both Ross and Etim, Gomi will try it but probably without much success still. When was the last time Gomi got a submission? lol Years fam! I guarantee Edson spends 90% of his time training on take down defence and Muay Thai boxing. That's probably all my man will need IMO.
Barboza got a TKO against Lullo with just leg kicks Lol, he's done that twice in his 10 fight career, this just shows the clean power he's got in his legs enit. He's got a purple belt in BJJ aswell
In his Muay Thai days he won 25 of his 28 fights, 22 by knockout and 17 of them ended in the first round!!
I'm seeing the Brazilians sweeping up 5 of the 7 UFC divisions. Renan Barao will be Bantamweight champion, Jose Aldo Featherweight champion (If he stays there at Featherweight) Edson Barboza Lightweight champion, JDS Heavyweight champion and Anderson Middleweight champion (until he finally gives Sonnen the rematch, he gets schooled by Munoz in training apparently and asks for Sonnen to fight Munoz for the chance to fight him whilst he is 'injured' so he ent gotta fight em both)

I like Edson too but he's going to have trouble with some of the bigger, tougher, wrestlers in the division.

They should let him develop instead of throwing him into the fire too soon
