I'm in the 6 minute mark of Faber-Barao and i'm already excited. Thought i'm not going to watch this one live but who knows now.

I love fights like this, it's either the hype will be derailed or proved as true. No idea who is going to take this but I reckon as Faber put it, it will be a barn burner!

Thanks for the links!

Renan Barao is not hype, he's a great fighter.

i feel like an idiot but i just dont see what every1 else sees in barao...i think he is a top guy, he has amazing skills but i think hes sloppy in the stand up and his bjj is good but i dont think he can submit faber

in other words, renan is a killer but i just dont see him getting past faber, i see him getting tired and sloppy and faber out working him...BUT i hope im wrong, i wanna see barao vs cruz!

The UFC does such a great job at these countdowns and now if they could just move them from Fuel TV then they could probably squeeze a couple of extra buys for this ppv. I am even more pumped for Barao vs. Faber than I was before and expect a back and forth war but the intrigue lies in the fact that both guys always bring it but both are killers that can finish a fight at any moment I just think Barao has more weapons than Faber. This countdown made me a Boestch fan and would love to see him pull off the upset but wouldn't be upset if Lombard got the W but after watching their highlights I expect someone to go to sleep. Didn't really know alot about Shawn Jordan but they gave me a reason to like him (living in the south gotta respect anybody that played football in the SEC). It did its job and I am going to chip in with about 10 friends and order it at my house. Still think they missed out on moving McGee vs Ring to the main card just so they would have the Nick Ring story to hype that fight.

What the hell. Shawn Jordan in 4th grade wrestled at 149 and was 240 by 8th grade. That is insane.

1. BJ "The Prodigy" Penn
2. Dan "Hollywood" Henderson
3. George "Rush" St Pierre

I copied it into the OP as well, time for some Lombard.

Edit: Damn, 2 minutes into the video and i already like Tim. Also saw an Estonian own fighter sprawling from Lombard in the vid.
