Donald Cerrone vs. Edson Barboza on UFC on Fox, 4/19

This could be a crazy kickboxing war, or Cerrone takes the fight to the ground.

I was just wondering when Barboza was gonna fight again. that dude is the next champ. book it.

lets see him beat a top 10 guy first. he had some momentum but jamie varner ended that hype train quickly. simply put he has talent but i dont see that signature win. beating terry etim doesnt cut it for me.

its a great highlight. i understand ppl will see that and think theres your next champ. once you peel back the layers you see what varner did to him and realize he hasnt beaten anyone. cerrone will be by far the best guy he has fought.

it's not just who he fought, but i think it's his elite standup and ability to defend the takedowns well. his muay thai is probably one of the best in the UFC. beating guys like Terry Etim (once pegged as one of the top prospects in MMA), Ross Pearson (who is no joke in the division, either), and a fight of the night against Danny Castillo aren't terrible for someone that's only 26. the loss vs. Varner, IMO, was a huge surprise, but that's what i love about MMA

i dont think he sucks, nor do i the names you listed who he has beat. but when we're talking about being a champ, in a div with aldo, pettis, bendo, gil, nate, grant, thomson (if he hangs around). hes a middle of the pack guy, i rate dos anjos and khabib better than him. i dont even know if he'd get past jim miller or pat healy.

i see where you're coming from. it's a super deep division, but i see the progress he's making, especially with the ground game. Cerrone is going to be a tough matchup
Anthony "Rumble" Johnson is back with the UFC and will be slotted vs. Phil Davis at 205 at UFC 172.

Also, Shogun vs. Henderson 2 on 3/23, UFC Fight Night.

JDS has left the Blackhouse/Team Nog camp and has moved over to Nova Uniao, the camp that trains the likes of Jose Aldo and Renan Barao.

Apparently, Big Nog is NOT happy and is very upset and feels betrayed.

i think he's still 2-3 wins away from getting a title shot. ceronne is a good measuring stick.

can't blame him....... it didn't look like he improved at all from JDS/Cain 2 to JDS/Cain 3. yeah he had the win vs Hunt in between.... but as much of a fan of hung as i am, let's be serious about that matchup.

lol if the dude can't make 205, he needs to seriously consider permanently staying at heavyweight, where he still looked pretty explosive.
potential snag in the aldo-pettis fight

Give ma dood Cub Swanson another shot at Aldo.
