    very smart move. will be helpful for both. barboza is not on aldo's level but his fluidity in the striking has probably been helpful to edgar's preparations for Jose.

    Ehh, could have done better with partners. Blackzilians would have been good. As well as AKA.

    Edgar won the fight against Henderson?

    If that's true, then Pearson won the fight against Barboza.

    Whatever you say bud, I'm pretty sure I watched Henderson win against him twice in a row. You sound like BJ fans after his fights with Edgar.

    Barboza isn't on Aldo's level? No shit but who is? Barboza is about the best sparring partner Edgar can find to prepare him for the kicks, movement, style of Aldo. Plus Barboza loses one fight against a long time top LW and now people want to act like he is worthless (*not directed at you exactly just throwing it out there) Also, id wager Barboza is basically as fast as Aldo but actually bigger, stronger so its a great help to Edgar regardless if he was fighting Aldo or not.

    eh, if you go through the media sites, and look at all the journalists that sat and scored the rounds, edgar won....only people who saw differently were the judges...please dont try to argue that the judges appointed by the state are better reps

    One day a Barboza vs Aldo fight would be pimp if he evolves his game. Good to work with for Edgar against Aldo's Muay Thai.

    Well Penn did win the first one. I don't know many people, even Edgar fans who argue that.
    I thought Edgar and Bendo went 1-1
