They just announced it on TUF, aired a video package promoting Barao and everything and had him and Faber square off, I wasn't even aware it's on Twitter.

Looking forward to this fight. But man I wish I could watch Dominick put a beating on Urijah.

Should be good though. Solid for a replacement.

Excellent news.. I hope Dana makes him defend the interim title, finally add some legitimacy to the term "interim champ".

Best possible matchup, Cruz will ultimately beat whoever gets the interim belt, but no reason the division should be put on hold till he heals. Love this matchup

Cruz is a good matchup for Barao.

He can't win standing and if he takes it to the ground he's gonna be like a fish out of water. Barao is nasty.

Well they didn't have much of a choice since MacDonald is injured. Great matchup though, i hope Faber pulls it off.

Huge opportunity for Barao, I'm not sure if he can handle Faber like Aldo did though. Great fight.
