#UFC197 is shaping up to be one of the most highly anticipated fight cards of the year and the addition of Anthony Pettis Vs Edson Barboza is definitely a testament to that.
BREAKING: Anthony Pettis vs. Edson Barboza set for lightweight bout on April 23rd at UFC 197. Location TBA.
— UFC Tonight (@UFCTonight) February 18, 2016
Former UFC Lightweight Champion Anthony “Showtime” Pettis is coming into this bout off the back of two losses against current Champion Rafael Dos Anjos and former Bellator Lightweight Champion Eddie Alvarez.
Brazilian Edson Barboza is also coming into this one off the back of a loss, that one coming at the hands of Tony Ferguson back in December.
Both of these 155lbers are known for their unorthodox striking and between them have some of the best highlight reel wins in the promotions history.
