A ferocious striker with a string of Fight of the Night awards to his name, the No. 4-ranked Barboza has won three of his last four, defeating Beneil Dariush, Gilbert Melendez and Anthony Pettis. In the No. 7-ranked Lee, Barboza will face a dynamic star on the rise who is 5-1 in his last six, a run that includes victories over Jake Matthews, Francisco Trinaldo and Michael Chiesa.
