Edson Barboza Wants to Fight Jamie Varner Again

| by

Edson Barboza (10-1) is just waiting for the UFC to call about his next fight and hopes it happens before the end of 2012.

"I still hope to fight this year," said Barboza to TATAME. "I have no injuries and I'm training hard. But I'm an employee, so when they think it's time I'll be ready."

Since Barboza doesn't know when his next fight will be, he continues to stay in shape and improve his skills.

"I always train hard, I never stop," said Barboza. "It won't be any different. I'll keep training hard, fixing my mistakes and learning more. The bright side of this time off is [I get to] learn and perfect my skills."

Barboza's undefeated streak was ended at 10 wins when Jamie Varner (27-7-1-2 NC) won via TKO at UFC 146. He hopes for a rematch between the two in the near future.

"Of course it would be a fight I'd like to do later because I didn't do my best and he found me first, so I couldn't show how prepared I was," said Barboza. "But if I have another chance things will be different. I'd let go and really go for it."
