Chances are most big MMA fans will do whatever it takes this weekend to somehow, someway, catch Edson Barboza vs. Justin Gaethje, and recently the UFC shared out a reason why.
The fighters will battle in the headliner of Saturday’s UFC Philadelphia contest, in a contest that features two of the most dangerous, aggressive lightweights on the roster.
Case in point, the video below is Barboza’s 2017 win over Beneil Dariush, which he secured with a vicious, flying knee.
Here is the line-up for UFC Philadelphia.
