Featherweights Edson Barboza and Shane Burgos To Fight At May 15th UFC Event

Featherweights Edson Barboza and Shane Burgos will clash at UFC’s May 15th event. The matchup was first reported by Raphael Marinho of Combate.

The fight joins a growing lineup that does not have a confirmed location at the moment.

Barboza will be returning after earning a much-needed victory in his last bout. The now decade-long UFC veteran snapped a three-fight skid in October, defeating Makwan Amirkhani via unanimous decision.

The previous losing streak was the longest of Barboza’s career.

Burgos will be returning after being handed a loss last year. Burgos had his three-fight run of wins from 2018 to 2019 stopped in June, as he dropped a unanimous decision to Josh Emmett.

Burgos was meant to fight on a card in January against Hakeem Dawodu, although the fight was cancelled after Dawodu suffered an injury.

UFC’s May 15th card continues to gain new bouts. The show does not have a reported main event as of yet, but here are the previously reported bouts.

Bout 5: Gina Mazany (7-4) vs. Priscila Cachoeira (9-3) (Flyweight)
