The legendary Edson Barboza was defeated at last night’s UFC event, Murphy said: “All I care about is the title!”

The legendary Edson Barboza was defeated at last night's UFC event, Murphy said:

In the shadow of the fight for the title of absolute heavyweight champion, last night’s UFC event remained in the shadows. Perhaps rightly so, as he didn’t really offer anything special and in the main fight of the evening we saw a new performance from the indestructible Edson Barboza. His opponent was the undefeated Lerone Murphy, and he maintained his record after the match.

The British fighter put in a very disciplined boxing performance and the legendary Barboza suffered major damage in this fight. However, he managed to get through all five rounds and in the end Murphy won by unanimous decision (50-45, 50-45, 49-46). With this, Murphy managed to maintain his undefeated status and after the game he stated:

“I came here to die.” I came to war. I packed all my things and left them at the hotel, I wasn’t sure if I would return home. That’s what I came for. I had the hardest time of all here. I worked hard and kept rising. I’m not so worried about the rankings, I came here for the title. I just beat a legend, Edson Barboza, who was on a two-win draw. I deserve to be recognized now. “I’ve been in the cage with the best of the best, I’ve shown my worth and now I’m going to be the champion,” Murphy said after the big win.
