UFC 242 ‘Embedded’ video (Ep. 4): Baby ‘Dragon’ wants Paul Felder to ditch MMA, take up gardening

While most of the attention is on the lightweight title unification fight between Khabib Nurmagomedov and Dustin Poirier — and rightly so — the UFC 242 pay-per-view (PPV) co-main event is likely to be just as exciting, as two combatants ranked in the lightweight Top 10 run it back for a spot in the division title chase.

I’m talking, of course, about Edson Barboza and Paul Felder, who delivered a “Fight of the Night” performance at UFC on FOX 16 back in summer 2015. Barboza captured the unanimous decision victory, but I don’t think anyone mixed martial arts (MMA) fans have a problem with this long overdue rematch.

If it was up to Felder’s four year-old daughter, however, this would be the final fight of his combat sports career. After all, why settle for punches to the face (and collapsed lungs) when you can grow tomatoes and spinach in the backyard?
