UFC 146 is shaping up to be one hell of an event. In addition to the highly anticipated heavyweight title bout pitting challenger Alistair Overeem against the reigning champion, Junior dos Santos, and the recently announced middleweight date between Jason “Mayhem” Miller and C.B. “The Doberman” Dollaway, a lightweight bout featuring Edson Barboza and Evan Dunham has officially filled a slot on the card.

Edson Barboza is one of the few active lightweights to still boast an undefeated record. With a professional mark standing at 10-0, the Brazilian has pieced together four consecutive victories inside the octagon. In his most recent outing, at UFC 142, he rendered the lanky Terry Etim unconscious in the third round after landing a beautiful spinning wheel kick to the chin.

Dunham in contrast has experienced the ebb and flow that comes for most competitors in the UFC
