If UFC asks Edson Barboza who he wants to fight next, for sure it's Donald Cerrone!

"I think the biggest difference from the last fight, because 100-percent I want to win the fight. No disrespect to Cerrone, he's a great fighter, but if UFC ask me, 'Who you want to fight right now?' For sure, Donald Cerrone. I want to fight with the best guys in my division. I'm ready for this. I told you inside the cage: You guys not see the best Edson Barboza yet. Coming soon guys, for sure."

Fresh off his UFC Fight Night 57 win over Bobby Green (watch it), top lightweight striker Edson Barboza is still hung up on his loss to Donald Cerrone at the UFC on FOX 11 event last April. Probably because the Brazilian was having his way with "Cowboy" until getting dropped with the epic jab of doom, which led to a first-round submission loss. Barboza (15-2) has since put together a pair of wins and got himself back into the title hunt, but if Cerrone can wiggle past Myles Jury at UFC 182 in January (details), he's probably more interested in chasing championships than rematches. That shouldn't stop us from speculating on what would happen if these two ever crossed paths again. Would history repeat itself?
