    Hope it's true? Brooks doesn't deserve a fight like Barboza yet. Home skillet 'bout to get lit up.

    Looks more like he's requesting not announcing.

    Good fight for both guys, winner would have to be deserving of a #1 contender fight.

    That's what I'm thinking. Far from an official fight announcement.

    Think he does. They give Eddie Cerrone, Pettis, and Gilbert I think he deserves Barboza. Finishing Chandler isn't an easy task.

    Doesn't deserve it, but oh well. Be careful what you wish for, because that thing will kick your legs until you can't stand.

    Don't think Will should get a fight with Edson yet.

    I think a fight with Michael Chiesa or Dustin Poirier would make a little more sense first.

    Yeah you don't usually see fighters announcing fights there wasn't a hint of before, and it looks like he's tagging the UFC and Barboza to get their attention.

    If Barboza beats Pettis, Gil, and Brooks, in a row, he's gonna be way up there in contention. More impressive than Ferguson's streak, even.

    Brooks didn't impress me against Pearson. Look at how Barboza fought ross

    Chiesa is hurt unfortunately. I agree that'd be a more fitting matchup. We'll see this one isn't official yet.

    I can't see how anybody could have been impressed. I know he took the fight on short notice but still. He was tired and got boxed up in the third round. Also struggled taking down Pearson at times who isn't exactly Aldo or prime BJ when it comes to staying on his feet.

    Brooks talking big shit like he wants a big fight though, careful what you wish for. This isn't official yet it sounds like another callout more than anything.
