Edson Barboza vs. Bryce Mitchell in the works for UFC event on March 5

The classic striker-grappler match is currently in development as Edson Barbosa is expected to face Bryce Mitchell at the upcoming UFC Fight Night event scheduled for March 5th.

Several sources confirmed that Thursday’s MMA Fighting match took place with verbal agreements for both athletes. This was originally reported by MMA Junkie.

Barbosa (22-10) will be looking to return to the win column after losing to Gigi Chikadze in his last game in August. Prior to this setback, Barbosa had two straight wins, including an impressive knockout over Shane Burgos.

As for Mitchell (14-0), he will aim to remain undefeated in a career that includes five straight UFC wins. The Arkansas native appears to be a serious up-and-coming featherweight player after defeating Andre Fili and Charles Rosa in recent fights.

Mitchell will now take a step forward in the competition to take on veteran Barbosa when the two featherweight weights meet in March.

As of now, no major event or location for the March 5 map has been announced.
