Fight Night: Barboza - Gaethje
UFC On Saturday (30 March) 23:00 (GMT 0) 


UFC obviously did its best to promote UFC events on ESPN. In the second exclusive event that UFC made for ESPN, the world's No. 1 MMA tournament gathered two of the Lightweight, Edson Barboza and Justin Gaethje, the best ranked fighters, to lead the Fight card. This pair of matches promises to bring about a fierce match with explosive moments in each minute.

Perhaps there is no need to introduce much about Edson Barboza. As one of the top-ranked veterans, with Muay Thai and Taekwondo backgrounds, Barboza owns the best, most quality and most dangerous kicks. After two defeats against Khabib Nurmagomedov and Kevin Lee, Edson Barboza returned impressively to Dan Hooker. He is expecting to once again prove his position in the top rank.


Meanwhile, Justin Gaethje stood out with his unruly style of fighting to the point of madness - he was willing to dive into the blow just to have a chance to take down the opponent. Like Edson Barboza, Gaethje suffered two consecutive defeats against Eddie Alvarez and Dustin Poirier before having a perfect KO win against James Vick.
