No.

How do you expect a purple belt to lay ontop of a legit black belt for 5 rounds and not be endangered? Cruz is at a disadvantage on the ground. If he can't beat Barao standing then he's most likely going to lose.

And as I said 18 months ago: Cruz will bob and weave his way into a high knee and the rest is history. Either that or lose a similar UD to the Faber one.
I have $1m credits and a sig bet against LyotoLegion on this fight.

Well if the only grappling discipline he knew was bjj you would have a point. I expect a vastly superior wrestler with a good knowledge of bjj to be able to lay on top of a blackbelt for a lot of the fight.

i suspect barao will outclass cruz for the first 2 rounds, thn cruz will go for the takedown which he will likely get and try to smother barao... problem is that after a round or two barao will either sub cruz or sweep and stand back up and continue his standup domination..

then in a couple years we will have a real contender for aldo frankie etc..
