Sunday night/early morning Central time the UFC will hold the third tournament without spectators during the week on “VyStar Veterans Memorial Arena” (Jacksonville, Florida, USA). Probably, after the UFC Fight Night 172 subsequent events the promotion will move to Las Vegas in their own arena “UFC APEX”.
Once a top lightweight Barbosa debut at the tournament in the Featherweight division to meet are doing well with IGEM.
Barbosa, apparently, change the division tries to restart his career. He lost four of the last five fights. After you lose Habib Nurmagomedova and Kevin Lee Barbosa knocked out Dan hooker, and then lost to Justin Geydzhi and Paul Felder. Although in a September fight with Felder Barbosa looked good with the other judges could well claim victory.
Ij after an unsuccessful debut in the UFC is a series of five victories. In his last fight “Dynamite” picked up over the much-touted team Mirsad Bectochem, although it was a close fight and the judges could give the victory to either side.
Forecast for battle
In General, IG is a very versatile fighter, able to strike opponents on the feet and shred them on the ground. Barbosa is known as a great kickboxer, having problems with a strong Grappler. But ICU in the terrestrial component far from Nurmagomedov and Lee and Barbosa well protected from takedown mediocre Grappler, so on paper this looks like a good fight for the Brazilian. If Vashanka not ismusic “Junior”, then he should win on points or by knockout in the second half of the match.
