Barboza vs Felder: Tale of the Tape
Four years ago, Paul Felder was on an impressive 10-match winning streak. Heading into the Barboza vs Felder fight in 2015, it was expected that Felder’s streak would be extended to 11-0. However, that wasn’t to be as Edson Barboza emerged the winner, ending Felder’s undefeated run in the company. In 2019, it seems Felder might finally get his revenge.
Barboza (20-7) vs Felder (16-4) will be a match where agility and strength will both play a major role. None of these men are into ground and pound style of fighting but both of them can land hard punches and kicks. Both of them have a very similar style and they know each other for years now. This dynamic will prove to be interesting when they finally fight.
Barboza only -150 against Felder 👀
