Wooooow, those leg kicks. Barboza's leg kicks are something fierce. That's two leg kick stoppages for him in the UFC. Even Varner was taking them pretty badly when they fought before he overwhelmed Barboza.

I think thats Oliveira last fight in the UFC 1-3 is not great, and hes not a name value.
Edson looked great, Edson Vs Khabib next please

I feel kind of bad for Rafaello. His team mate was holding him up there. Barboza doesn't kick to score points. He kicks to take you out.

Anyone else think that Dave Herman looked stoned in the dressing room? Or is it just my dodgy stream?

Good stuff, I just hope Edson's striking defense holds up in the future. We need to see him against another aggressive striker.

Speaking of hoping, I hope to see Gonzaga come into his fight in shape. He's a good fighter, and I want to see him get another run going in the UFC.

His head movement is pretty suspect. I hope that Gonzaga starts throwing kicks again.
