    You have a technical guy in Barboza that picks his opponents apart with violent leg kicks, and body kicks, versus a pure brawler with an iron chin, so what does Barboza do? Throw down in close proximity and get KO'd.

    Was Barboza maybe training with meathead Perry? Maybe he should fight Mia next and take it to the ground, or do a wrestling match with Khabib cuz thats always a great idea.

    the myth of 'technical barboza' exposed tonight

    he's never been that technical
    too scared whenever a guy pressures him

    MYTH EXPOSED

    I mean say what you want, but hes never brawled either, his game has always been methodical, leg kicks, body kicks, head kicks, and jabs. What the fuck this was i have no idea

    He is technical, but he struggles with guys that crowd him offensively

    Barboza can't handle pressure because he can't kick going backwards and his hands are fast but not powerful

    It's not so much the game plan, more just he doesn't have the skill set to beat a guy like Gaethje

    Or Tony or Khabib for that matter

    A guy with a history of eyepokes poked his way to victory again tonight. Literally had Barboza's eye bleeding. This kid deserves to get smoked again.

    Justin forced the issue

    Edson didn't have a choice in the matter but to try to hurt Gaethje to get some respect

    Barboza always has and probably always will set his feet for kicks and got straight to the fence when pressured

    Fucking this, Barbozas striking has always been overrated, he kicks hard but he can’t box for shit.

    I was not a winning MMA gambler, but I do remember winning money on Varner as a big underdog against Barboza. Just too much pressure.
