The UFC fighter has now notched up back-to-back victories at featherweight after making his debut in the UFC weight class in 2020.

Barboza admitted that he was "very happy" with his sensational UFC 262 win and warned the other UFC featherweight fighters about his presence in the division.

"I'm very happy," he said.

"Look at me, I think that's the Fight of the Night. 3-0 at featherweight. I definitely feel more healthy. Guys in featherweight, I'm coming for all you guys."

Speaking ahead of UFC 262, Barboza revealed that he cut weight down to featherweight because he was "getting boring" at fighting at lightweight.

"I fought pretty much everyone in the weight class above and was always fighting people ranked behind me," he told MMA Fighting.

"I wanted to, I don't know, a new challenge. It was getting boring [at lightweight], to keep fighting people ranked behind me.

"I didn't move up with a win and kept coming down with a loss. It was getting boring, I wanted new motivation. This is the new motivation, to switch weight classes."
