Raoni Barcelos edges Khalid Taha

The difference is the versatility of attacks from Barcelos. Taha isn’t doing anything but boxing. Taha has crisp hands and power but it’s 1-dimensional as we’re seeing. He needs something big here or Barcelos is running away with this clear win. #UFCVegas13

— Aljamain Sterling (@funkmasterMMA) November 8, 2020

That fight was awesome! Barcelos and Taha #UFCVegas13

— Jan Blachowicz (@JanBlachowicz) November 8, 2020

standing Ovation for that fight

— Eryk Anders (@erykanders) November 8, 2020

FOTN!!!! #UFCVegas13

— Tatiana Suarez (@tatianaufc) November 8, 2020

Barcelos vs Taha was an absolutely amazing fight. These dudes aren’t even ranked and that look like a top ten level fight in any other weight class.

— Cody Stamann (@CodyStamann) November 8, 2020

Gives those men some cheddar for that effort!! #UFCVegas13 #FOTN

— Alan Jouban (@AlanJouban) November 8, 2020

Taha is a soldier and Barcelos is super dope! Impressive stuff gentlemen!! #UFCVegas13
