It won’t be a problem if they cut me one day. If the UFC cuts me off, I’m sure I’ll have a job at another company. Honestly, I don’t care about this. If the result is the opposite of what I want, which I am sure it will not be, if they cut me off, I know my value, I know my will and where I can go », he began by saying Edson.

“If I leave the UFC, I will have a job in another promotion, no problem at all. He will definitely try to take me down, but this is an MMA fight. I’m well prepared, and I’m sure he’ll be quick to grab my legs to take a takedown and try to deal with me, but it won’t end well for him. Kicking is my specialty, but there I will unleash my game. If I do what I have been doing in the gym, this fight will not get out of hand, “he had said in the previous one, which was not different for Edson barboza.
