Yea he won me over with that one and then the destruction of spaniard was epic hahah ill admit after pettis ko'ed him i didnt think he would make it back to the upper echelon but he has worked his ass off. I expect this to be a good fight and i think he wins

he got robbed of a draw against barboza. impossible that round 1 wasn't a 10-8.

also, he practically KO'ed MJ too.

Barboza has a glass jaw. Ferguson has a granite chin. Ferguson wouldn't have lost to Jamie Varner in 2 minutes.
Barboza arguably lost to Ross Pearson and would have possibly lost to Njokuani if he didn't land that spinning heel kick in the final 15 seconds.

Agreed with the first part. That was definitely a 10-8 round 1.

Barboza was green when he fought Varner. His only loss in the last 3 years is to Cowboy.

Let's be honest, Barboza was in trouble against Danny for a while but stuffed 10 of 11 takedowns and dominated the stand up in the second and third rounds. Ferguson got controlled by Castillo and the stand up was much more even.

Barboza would have killed Ramsey, Yves Edwards, and Mike Rio. Those wins don't mean he's better.
