During the recent media day, Edson Barboza shared his thoughts on fighting Max Holloway.

“If one guy deserves to fight for the BMF title, it’s me,” Barboza said, as quoted by mmajunkie.usatoday.com. “Who has better highlight knockouts than me? Bro, imagine. I love Max Holloway, he’s one of my favorite fighters ever.

I love to watch him fight, and he’s a very nice guy, very family guy, but imagine a fight against him for the BMF belt. It’s going to be very, very good for me and him and the company. Like I said, I have 30 fights in the UFC.

I think I deserve that. Of course, my focus is 100 percent on the next one, but I think it’s going to be good”.
