Lol during actual fights i mean, he can take a punch and he doesnt wear down very easily. What happens during training is another story. The fact that hes only fighting 5 round fights now should make him a way more dangerous opponent for anyone in the division as its gonna be hard to grapple-f#ck him to a decision. His cardio is great aswell.

Are we talking about the Barboza Cerrone nearly knocked out with a jab? Ya I'll take Pettis everyday of the week and twice on Sunday.

Are you people serious? This would look alot like Cerrone vs Pettis.

Don't let Barboza coming off an impressive victory and Pettis being sidelined cloud your vision. Pettis does everything Barboza does and a lot better. Pettis may be made out of legos (still my favorite fighter) but he is great at not getting hit and has proven to have a great chin when he does get hit. Barboza is not good at either of these things. Barboza has a great offense but gets hit a lot. Pettis is extrmeley more dynamic has a lot more tools to finish him with.

Most importantly Barboza doesn't have that killer instinct that Pettis does, he's a talented fighter regardless he just can't hit that switch like Pettis does.

Pettis has the edge everywhere and the belt

TS, you're a short-sighted dolt.

I would have to favor Pettis slightly though.
Defense? Pettis defense is top notch and miles ahead of barboza's. Pettis has taken maybe one clean shot his entire career and that was way back in his first loss.

Pettis. Barboza is entirely offense-minded but is incredibly hittable and doesn't have the strongest chin in the world. The fight would be fun while it lasted though.
