This will be no different than Khabib v Barboza. Also I thought they were gonna do Islam vs Gilbert Burns?

In the past five years, Barboza has fought:

Michael Johnson

Felder

Ferguson

Pettis

Melendez

Dariush

Khabib

Lee

Hooker

Gaethje

Plus he had to get through a eight to twelve week camps just to get in there with those monsters. He managed to go 5-5. Tough motherfucker.

Yeah it does but some fighters do it in a way a little easier than Edson.

Look how a guy like MVP fought cans for years, not Edson, he was in the UFC after like six fights in just a couple years, many of them in Ring of Combat, a tough, tough feeder league.

Tons of fighters would pass up the Pettis fight after losing to Ferguson, they would want someone they could be a bigger favorite over to bounce back in a more guaranteed way.

Tons of fighters would pass up the Lee fight after losing to Khabib, not Edson. Even more fighters would have declined Hooker (who was KOing everyone) after losing to Khabib and Lee. What did Edson do? He bounced back vs Hooker, and then jumps in there with Gaethje, one of the most violent and dangerous LWs out there.

Edson is 1-3 in his last four vs Khabib, Lee, Hooker and Gaethje and he is jumping right in there with 17-1 Makhachev who Khabib and others think so highly of that they see him winning the title after Khabib retires.

Plenty of LWs would be unwilling to take the Makhachev fight like Edson right now, they would want a favorable matchup vs a old guy like Jim Miller or someone more beatable than Makhachev like Stevie Ray or Marco Polo Reyes.

Is there anything that's looking like Edson will have something soon. I know you can't say who, but does he have anything in the works we can be on the lookout for?
