UFC 242 will be headlined by Khabib vs Poirier where Khabib Nurmagomedov, the UFC Lightweight Champion faces off against Dustin Poirier, the UFC Interim Lightweight Champion, and both men intend to win and unify the title to become the undisputed champ! However, while expectations are high from this match, there’s another co-main event alongside this one! Barboza vs Felder.
Some fans expect that Barboza facing Felder for the second time would be a better match than Khabib and Poirier. Let us take a closer look at this.
Does anyone else find it odd that Felder vs Barboza is the co main for the Khabib vs Poirier card, along with the lack of promotion of the card in general?

UFC 242: Barboza vs Felder – What to Expect?
The fact of the matter is – Barboza and Felder are two men who know each other really well. They had a fight four years ago where Edson Barboza defeated Paul Felder. However, both the men were quite green back then. Four years later they’ve matured as fighters and have found their true rhythm! It will be interesting to see if Felder is able to defeat Barboza this time.
These two men are going to be the real show-stealers of the night. Barboza vs Felder is going to be all about a skillful set of moves and a combination of hard hits and technical submissions! It will be interesting to see how these old foes perform when they meet once again after four years!
Who yall got in Barboza vs Felder
