Edson Barboza vs. Justin Gaethje Set To Headline UFC on ESPN 2
Edson Barboza and Justin Gaethje are two names you’d want to see every weekend on a UFC card. The two men have excelled in their art of mastering violence, and were sooner or later expected to cross paths.
As it stands, the time and date has been made official. Philadelphia will witness the two craftsmen try and kick each other into oblivion on March 30th! Gaethje and Barboza are set to headline UFC on ESPN 2, in a pivotal lightweight clash.
Edson Barboza (20-6) is coming off a win against Dan Hooker, while the former WSOF champion Justin Gaethje (19-2) looks to better his UFC record, and climb up the lightweight rankings. Gaethje had previously defeated James Vick in under 90 seconds, with a devastating knockout punch that earned him the Performance of the Night bonus.
UFC Philadelphia will roll out of the Wells Fargo Center, and will also witness a high-stakes female strawweight clash between Michelle Waterson, and Karolina Kowalkiewicz.
