Edson Barboza has been legitimately doing Muay Thai longer than most of you have been alive. He hasn’t been just ‘doing’ it either; He’s been killing it.
You look at this little kid and see a talented martial artist. Little did anyone know that he’d grown into one of the most savage lightweight fighters in the world on the cusp of a #1 contender fight.
Barboza has been doing this for what seems like forever. In fact, his knockout of Terry Etim is still one of the top knockouts in UFC history. It’s been six years since that highlight reel KO and Barboza is still taking names.
Edson Barboza fights Khabib Nurmagomedov this Saturday night at UFC 219 from Las Vegas, NV.
