    News has recently emerged that lightweight UFC contenders Evan Dunham and Edson Barboza will fight each other at UFC 146 on the 26th of May 2012. The event is likely to take place at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas and will be headlined by a heavyweight title match up between current champion Junior Dos Santos and the challenger Alistair Overeem.

    Evan Dunham enters this fight with an MMA record of 13-2. His most recent fight was against Nik Lentz at UFC on Fox 2 in which he scored a TKO victory due to a doctors stoppage. This fight earned both men “Fight Of The Night” Honors for their performance and gives Dunham a two fight winning streak. Evan will look to extend that streak to three with a win over Barboza which would put him right back in the picture at 155.

    The Brazilian Edson Barboza is currently undefeated with and MMA record of 10-0. Since making his debut in the UFC back in November 2010 Barboza has won all four of his fights with victories against Mike Lullo, Anthony Njokuani, Ross Pearson and most recently Terry Etim at UFC 142. Edson won both “Fight Of The Night” honors and “Knockout Of The Night” honors in the fight against Etim. He finished the fight with an amazing spinning wheel kick which many feel could have been one of the best UFC knockouts ever seen. Barboza will look to remain undefeated and carry on his path to the title with a big win over Dunham. This fight should be great! Don’t miss it.

    Thanks guys.
