With Edson Barboza (10-1) suffering his first loss at UFC 146, he doesn’t plan to allow it to derail his future. To him the loss is part of the learning experience.
“I always say we learn more out of loss than when we win, so I’ve learned a lot,” said Barboza. “Now I’m working in order not do make the same mistakes and get a win next.”
Jamie Varner (2-7-1-2 NC) handed Barboza is first loss in over two years as a professional MMA fighter.
Alex Davis, Barboza’s manager, said the UFC wants him to fight again before the year ends and Barboza is open to the idea.
“I want to get back there as soon as possible,” said Barboza. “I’ve been training a lot, correcting my mistakes to get back there better. I’m crazy about fighting again.”
