Barboza States He Helped Edgar Prepare For Henderson Bout And Thinks The Judges Got It Wrong | UFC News

By Jamie McAllister
Edson Barboza comments in an interview with TATAME.

This past weekend at UFC 150 Lightweight Champion Ben Henderson successfully defended his UFC Lightweight Title for the first time defeating Frankie Edgar via split-decision.

One man who did not agree with the decision was UFC Lightweight Edson Barboza.

“I didn’t agree with its outcome. I guess Edgar won.”

“I’ve been training with Frankie for a few weeks in New Jersey for this fight. I could tell how much he trained, how prepared he was. And from where I’m standing, he won.”

It was also confirmed that Nate Diaz will be the next to challenge Henderson for his title in the UFC on FOX 5 main event. Barboza comments on the bout and thinks it’s too close to call.

“I guess it’s going to be a great fight. A good title fight. It’s a very close division and it’s hard to point out a favorite. Both guys have chances to win”

    Diaz opens as a three to one underdog in this one.big mistake .that being said i got diaz by submission in the third.

  3. Bob says:

    the award for captain obvious goes to this guy

  4. Brazilian Clown says:

    Total BS ….. Henderson clearly won all Frankie did was jump around like a clown as usual Barboza is biased and talks shit ….. Varner probably knocked him retarded …..

    Henderson won and will go on smash Diaz and clean out the Lightweight Division …

    • Quitcrying says:

      Haha your a jack ass. Henderson made no effort to finish the fight at all and frankie completely out worked him. Tough decision loss for Frankie but I’m looking forward to Nate bitch slapping that arrogant fuck and tapping him out. I hope Nate yells at him “where’s your god at homie? Just you and me in here”

  5. Darcy says:

    how could hendo and edgar fight?

  6. Magoo says:

    Are there any UFC fighters that thought Bendo won? Every fighter that’s commented on the fight thought Frankie won….Mmm,it’s sad thats the way they try to make a fighter drop a weight class. Nate Diaz will push the pace just like Edgar did there will be a new champ after this fight….who woulda though
    and neeeew Light weight champ Naaaate. Diiaaaaazzz!!

  7. ASDF says:

    If you want to be honest and square, please tell everyone ALSO, that BJ was robbed in their first fight, and so Frankie should have lost. And, in your words, you didn’t agree with the outcome. But, you can’t- you just spit shit. Not a fan no more. Love Varner even more.

  8. Tapitout21 says:

    Why are we still talking about this shit…half the reporters of the site suck

  9. slacker says:

    Edgar won that fight 8 rounds to 7 by the judges’ scorecards. haha. But seriously, is there anyone out here who can tell me the last time a fighter lost a judges’ decision, but had the greater, total number of individual rounds scored in his favour?

  10. True MMA says:

    Oh yeah fucker, well Ben had Varner help him and Varner and kicked your ass and Ben smashed that jersey shore reject. So shut the fuck up.

    • Sasquatch says:

      Smashed him?!… what the fuck fight did you watch. Pull Ben’s dick out your mouth homo!.

    • slacker says:

      Even Henderson knows he lost. You could tell by his post – fight press conference comments. Edgar even shoved and tripped him to the ground easily in the 5th round. By the time the 5th came round, Edgar was landing several hard leg strike combinations, as well as landing punching combinations to his face. It was a pretty dominant round. The look in Henderson’s eyes coming out for the 5th and during the round said it all. He was shitting himself, but he got a break this time. He won’t be champ for long. He will lose after he beats Diaz.

  11. Calvin says:

    Way too biased to even have an opinion (Barboza) he just got k.o.ed by Jamie Varner who trains with Bendo and he trained with Frankie personally I thought Frankie won the first fight and Bendo won the second not that my opinion matters but if you’re reading one assholes comments another won’t hurt

  12. Bjj BB says:

    I think frankie did more in the 1st fight, meaning theres no way he won the 2nd fight!!
