UFC president Dana White turned to twitter today to announce a pretty big fight for UFC 147. Evan Dunham will take on the undefeated Edson Barboza in a bout that is almost surely main card material. Here's the tweet:

Dana White
For the UFC 147 card May 16th in Vegas we just signed Edson Barboza vs Evan Dunham!! #funfight
Feb 19 via Twitter for iPhone Favorite Retweet Reply


Dana corrected himself shortly after, and said he meant UFC 146 and May 26th. Still though, this is an excellent fight. Dunham has rebounded from two losses (to Sean Sherk and Melvin Guillard) by winning two in a row, most recently in a fight of the night performance against Nik Lentz. Barboza is 4-0 in the UFC and is coming off one of the best KO's in UFC history, a spinning wheel kick knockout of Terry Etim at UFC 142.

I dont know who to cheer for in this fight. Ultimately, Dunham should win this by using his wrestling and setting it up much better than in the Guillard fight, but you cannot count out Barboza

Very nice match up. I expect a war but hoping barboza will put him away and fight someone else to possibly earn a title shot

Great opportunity for both, Barboza becomes a legit contender, or Dunham regains lost momentum. I like Dunham early but this is going to be a fight night pick.

Great fight here, I Like Dunham to win in this one, but Barboza has a whole bunch of tricks up his sleeve.
