Makdessi vs Barboza Added To UFC 162

By:

A fantastic tussle between two amazing strikers has been added to UFC 162 as John “The Bull” Makdessi (11-2, 4-2 UFC) takes on Edson Barboza (11-1, 5-1UFC). UFC 162 goes down July 6th in Las Vegas, Nevada.UFC Logo Thumbnail

Makdessi, Canada’s 3rd ranked Lightweight,  will look to continue his winning ways as he is currently riding a 2 fight win streak with victories over Sam Stout and Daron Cruickshank. The Tristar product bounced back after back to back losses in late 2011 and early 2102 and now with his back to back wins is slowly working his way back up the UFC 155 lbs ladder.

Barboza, started his UFC run with 4 wins in row including a spinning wheel kick KO over Terry Etim that was the KO of the year in 2012. With the hype train hitting full speed Barboza was derailed by a returning Jamie Varner who TKO’d the young prospects midway into the first round. Now with a quick victory over Lucas Martin at UFC on FX 7 under his belt Barboza will look to return to his former form against Makdessi.

    Bombs will be thrown in this one and somebody is getting knocked out lol. Makdessi will likely be a huge underdog in this one but I would definitely not count him out. Great matchup stylistically.

    I GOT THE BULL IN THIS ONE, BARBOSA S CHIN IS A LITTLE SOFT AND JOHN WILL TEST THAT . IF HE JUMPS ON HIM LIKE VARNER DID , I MIGHT HAVE TO PUT SOME BENS DOWN AT THE SPORTS BOOK !

    I REALLY THINK THE BULL WILL SHOW HIS HORNS ON EDSONS ASS!

    I HOPE HE IS A HUGE UNDERDOG , MIGHT HAVE TO OPEN THE OLD CHECK BOOK ON THIS ON , IF THE MONEYS RIGHT
