At UFC 242, the co-main event between Edson Barboza and Paul Felder is an attempt for Felder to find himself. In their first fight, Barboza was able to win due to Felder’s inability to stick to his strength. The two fighters have since gone onto two different paths, Barboza is 1-3 in his last 4 and Felder is 3-1.
In this article, I’m going to examine what made Felder’s strategy against Barboza so maddening. Furthermore, if Felder turns up in this fight the same way he did in their first, he will likely lose another decision.
