Everybody thinks Barboza is gonna murderize Varner, but most of u must not be aware that Varner is one tough dude who has never been (T)KO'd, he has only been susceptible to being submitted...I'm not saying Barboza won't win but I see him taking a decision like he did against Njokuani and Pearson in back to back fights.
Every time Varner is on the ropes and appears close to being (T)KO'd he spits out his mouthguard or asks for a time out. Go ahead, rewatch some of his losses. It's sickening to watch.
I'll add this, the guy is really talented and well rounded, it was obvious in his first UFC fight against a highly ranked Hermes Franca, even though he lost that fight. He has the physical tools, but between the ears there seem to be some problems.
