November 22, 2014 11:49 am by BJPENN.COM News


Edson Barboza, who is preparing to fight Bobby Green in the co-main event of UFC Fight Night 57 tonight in Austin Texas, still wants a rematch against Donald Cerrone.

The bout between Barboza and Cerrone was one hardcore fight fans were drooling over, a matchup between two elite strikers. In the first round Barboza was dropped with a jab, and Cerrone sunk in the rear naked choke to secure the win.

Barboza spoke to MMAFighting to discuss his desire for a rematch.

If the UFC offers this fight, I will take it, but my focus is on Green now.”

“Every fight is important. It doesn’t matter where in the rankings my opponent is. I want to get the title, that’s the focus. Like I always say, I’m focused on my game and my strategy to beat him. I expect a war.”

Do you think Barboza will be able to get the win over Bobby Green tonight? Sound off in the comments section.
