    Do you think Edson at FW could become champ?

    He is certainly good enough, but just think it may be a little late for him in his career.

    He could run through most of the top 5 I believe

    He deserves some gold

    I think he has a shot. There's a ton of great match ups for him as long as he can keep making weight.

    His durability isn't good enough to me. It's a shame though he should have a win over Inge and be in a big fight.

    What would he even do to Holloway and Volk?

    He's old af

    He will fall off a cliff soon just like Tony

    He wasn't even good enough to become champ in his prime, no way in hell now

    Another F- thread by you

    Vs Holloway hed crumble, I think vs Ortega too but I think he offers tough tests to Volk and Zabit potentially.

    Felder fight was also a bad decision by the judges. He clearly won 2:1

    I've been saying ever since he moved down it was a good move. Not as many smothering top control guys and the extra size helps against those types. I think he's a real contender.

    Yes, I do. He 100% can fight with the best of him, if he worked on his head movement and striking defense in general, he COULD be fw champ.

    If someone can get him to round three and beyond he's in trouble.

    Yep, same with the Ige decision.

    Last night we saw vintage Barboza. Leg kicks all day, spinning shit, quick hands. Love it.

    Wish he did it earlier. He has maybe 2 years left.

    I think Max pieces him up and would favor either Volk or Ortega over him. I will say I hope he has a great run as hes damn fun to watch and his kicks are GOAT level.

    no, max will just pressure pressure pressure and probably finish him against the cage same for volk I think korean zombie knocks him out too. He probably beats yair since I think his hands are better

    He looks good at FW, but I don't see him beating the best guys in the division.
