UFC 123: Edson Barboza vs Mike Lullo

Anyone else looking forward to Barboza making his debut? This guy has been killing people so far, and has been compared to Aldo. Definitely not on that level yet, but the similarities ae easily seen. He seems to have improved his takedown defense quite a bit as well. I don't know much about his opponent, but he's 8-0 since losing a split decision in his 1st fight, and has been submitting guys with a variety of holds including the always popular gogoplata.

This fight has a bonus written all over it.

Here's Barboza's most recent title defense in ROC:

I'd like to see him against legit competition before we start saying he's the best thing since sliced bread

Lullo's coming in on a week's notice though, so that could be tough to overcome.

Ha, yeah. You can't say how good a fighter truly is when he only has 6 fights, especially when you look at who he's fought.
