Edson Barboza Admits to Falling into the Game of Khabib Nurmagomedov at UFC 219

At UFC 219, Edson Barboza had his impressive three-fight win streak stopped on the wrong end of a dominating performance…

”I really didn’t expect that to happen, man. I was very upset the week after the fight because I was well prepared, had a wonderful camp. It was a tough loss, no doubt about it. It was pretty much how we imagined it. I knew he wouldn’t take me down in the middle of the Octagon. I knew that his only chance to take me down was close to the fence, so I obviously worked that a lot, but he was able to impose his game, and I couldn’t get out of there. That was the problem. I fell in his game, I spent 15 minutes doing his game.”
