    Interesting because these two are switching weight classes.

    If his chin and stamina hold up(highly questionable), he will be a force at featherweight.
    He is as tall as Holloway, but has a 6 inch reach advantage.
    After a few of his lowkicks, his opponents will have a hard time to reach him.

    Had him winning against Felder.
    He was winning against Ferguson till the illegal kick
    He was winning against Cerrone, until he ran into his jab

    He's ranked 10 right now, but he is better than Hooker#7, beat Felder#6 twitce.
    Probably beats Iaquinta#9 and I got him beating Cerrone#5 in a rematch

    I'm scared for Barboza's life cutting down to 145.

    If he can pull it off without depleting himself too much though, he's gonna cause a lot of problems down there.

    I love how nobody is giving him shit other than being unhealthy. Yet yall ripped Conor for fighting at 145.

    Barboza is already very close to lean body mass. Moicano looks like he can still shed a few lbs of fat, before he can start cutting water.

    They look the same size. Which means one of them is competing in the wrong weight class, I wonder who it is?

    A stiff breeze will KO Barboza at featherweight.

    Yup he's a larger lightweight that's dropping down to FW. 5'11" and a pretty wide torso. Whereas Aldo was at least a smaller FW (by today's standards) dropping down to BW.

    He seems depleted at 155. Fades badly at the end of fights.
    That said I love watching barboza fight. Always exciting.

    Aldo managed to make BW, that is the same 10lbs, wouldnt this be "easier" percentage wise for the bigger guy to cut the extra 10lbs?

    Poor Conor. People are just so mean to him.

    Thankfully there's still guys like you to stand up for him.

    I hope Barboza fights a big puncher in his FW debut.

    Um... Edson has pretty much faced the entire top 10 at 155. Won some, lost some. What ducking?

    What am I missing here Bro ?

    Not standing up for Conor just treat everyone the same. Dude is killing himself to fight manlets and was a massive light weight. This is pathetic

    Naw, maybe casuals bitch but most hardcore fans are annoyed by him not defending against Edgar and other contenders. He also shot himself in the foot by claiming they're too small for him. Even at LW Conor looks to be a good size.

    Barboza has never complained about the weight cut (as far as I know) and he has all the tools to be a top 5 guy and he just isn't cracking it, Felder looked bigger than him and maybe he feels he's getting out muscled. Kevin Lee gorilla'd the fuck out of him.
