Mark Henry hopes the UFC doesn't offer Barboza a fight soon, because "He would never say no".

    Mark Henry thinks Edson needs some time off. For those unaware, he had full labrum and rotator cuff replacement surgery from an injury sustained fighting Dariush. That is the recovery Henry is referencing below. Here is the article. Enjoy!

    Edson never ducks a fight regardless of style matchup. You derps should appreciate these combat athletes more.

    When you don't want people to look at your porn stash in the corner, the last thing you should do is point at it and say "DON'T LOOK AT MY PORN STASH IN THE CORNER".

    Now guess what UFC will do when they need a short notice replacement? I think Mark Henry's IQ dropped 20 points permanently ever since Conor KTFO Alvarez.

    He’s never been much for breaks. I remember watching his debut and just realized his next ufc fight will be his 20th. That’s insane. He was only 6-0 coming in. That was 7 years ago.

    For reference, Tony Ferguson is known as an active guy (until lately) and he mads his debut the same year but has 13 ufc fights. Edson almost averages 3 per year and has never pulled out of a fight.

    I love Pauline
    Edson would KO Gaethje, Iaquinta, Alvarez, and Poirier easily. Let him bang bro

    It's not his fault that Kevin and Khabib are both GOATs

    Barboza is the shit. Love watching him fight win or lose. His fight against Tony is one of the best fights of all time.

    He needs some time off for sure, but he's also 32 years old, so...not THAT much time off.

    And both big as FUCK. No excuses, they won fair and square. But I think people underestimate how many people in the division they could do that to and how big they are. Easily two of the best wrestlers in the ufc and both fringe too big for LW.

    It’s no coincidence that both have missed weight and their weigh ins could generate pay per view buys because of the suspense. You know damn well when Khabib or Lee weigh in your ass is ready for some shit. Lol.

    Dude is not suitable to fight with all these dudes who want to hug him and put his ass on the floor for 15 minutes.
    He should go and bang in Kickboxing.

    Henry squatted 832 pounds in high school. Man was a beast.

    Well I think he could go 2-2 or 3-1. 4-0 through that killers row, Possible, but I really don’t think so.

    Would love to watch him and Al fight, and id slightly favor Al.

    Yeah Barboza and Poirier are both so powerful that's a 50/50 fight at best for either guy

    Everyone is already booked insode the top 15 except Lee anyways.

    I think if Vick or Chiesa win their next fights they could fight Barboza in NOV/DEC. The Booker/Burns or OAM/Hernandez winners would also be good options
