Edson Barboza competed in the main event of UFC Fight Night Philadelphia, suffering a first round knockout loss to Justin Gaethje.

However, a short time after disaster struck for the fighter, joy would also strike as well because Barboza would become a father again as his wife gave birth to a baby girl.

The newly minted father has now won just one of his last four under the UFC banner, with that lone win coming over Dan Hooker via third round knockout at UFC On Fox 31.

There is no word yet on when Barboza expects to return to action, but the fighter does so with a new child to support him.
