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”
