Review: 2014-11-22, some good single shots between Bobby Green and Edson Barboza but it is not enough to get three stars. Bobby Green entered this fight with a pro mma record of 23-5-0 (74% finishing rate) and he is ranked as the No.11 lightweight in the world, he suffered his last defeat (via split decision) in 2011 when he faced Gesias Cavalcante, since then he has won eight consecutive bouts, the last one against Josh Thomson (=Thomson vs Green).
His opponent, the black belt in tae-kwon-do Edson Barboza, has a record of 14-2-0 (79% finishing rate) and he entered as the No.24 in the same weight class, he has fought twice in 2014 losing the first bout, against Donald Cerrone (=Cerrone vs Barboza), but then he came back to win defeating Evan Dunham (=Barboza vs Dunham). Green vs Barboza is on the undercard of Frankie Edgar vs Cub Swanson – UFC FN 57. Watch the video and rate this fight!
