Before you bet on Edson Barboza vs. Lerone Murphy UFC on ESPN+ 99 Fight

Edson Barboza (24-11) is a true UFC legend famous for his incredible striking. He lands 4.18 significant strikes per minute, but he’s not just about volume, he’s also about power. This explains why 14 of his wins came by knockout/technical knockout.

Barboza is also loved by fans for being a true warrior in the Octagon who never seems to give up. This explains why his fights won Fight of the Night honors nine times.

The last time this happened was last October, when his fight with Sodiq Yusuff won this award. It was Barboza’s second win in a row, but his UFC on ESPN+ 99 odds suggest he won’t win again.

On May 18, 2024, he will fight Lerone Murphy (13-0-1), who still hasn’t suffered a single defeat in his professional career. Sounds impressive, but this guy has never fought a ranked opponent.

Lerone Murphy is an impressive fighter with a lot of weapons in his arsenal, but we haven’t seen him fight an elite fighter yet. The first time he will fight an elite opponent will happen on May 18. However, we don’t think he will impress. Instead, we expect the 38-year-old Barboza to derail the Murphy hype train.

Choose: Edson Barboza (+129)
