"Junior" signed with the UFC today. 4 fight deal with his first fight scheduled against Darren Elkins in UFC 123 to take place in Michigan on November 20th.

Junior has worked a long time in order to get this shot.

Congrats to "Junior" and look out Lightweights

 Best striker at 155, maybe the best striker in the UFC . I thought his last name was "Barboza"?

Yes, alot of people have asked about Juniors name. Just for the record, it is Edson Mendes Junior.

We are hoping moving forward that there wont be mixups :)

Thanks for the well wishes

 Awesome!  Been watching him destroy guys at the ROC.  Is he still fighting there in a couple weeks? Guess not.

Looking forward to seeing Junior fight in the UFC.

Heres an analysis of Junior and his skillset:

Edson Barboza: Analysis and Info

I will make sure his name is changed.

He also ranked #21 on our Top 50 Prospects list with only 2 other LWs (Charles Oliveira and Pat Curran being slightly ahead of him.

Of all the LW prospects we feel that Junior has the most potential of any of them.

Hopefully he keeps working his sprawl because this kid is a fvcking beast! Best of luck to him, reminds me of a taller version of Aldo.

People can just start waving goodbye to their legs. This dude has all the tools Jose Aldo's got, but with more power behind it.
