Barao is a beast; I don't see anyone but Cruz beating him right now.

Barao is a top guy by any means and it's time to see where he stands in the divison. I hope Faber wins though.

I'm picking Barao by 48-47 UD.

Urijah is one of my favorite fighters, but he's always struggled against Muy Thai fighters. I think Barao will kick the shit out of Faber's legs and frustrate him with his speed and fluid striking before slowing down and allowing Faber to pick up steam.

This fight should look something like Thomson vs. Melendez III.

Barao doesn't have that effective of a leg kicking game. His kicks are all telegraphed and from his stance.

Faber will probably catch a kick and take him down.

The interesting thing will be Barao's bottom game.

Truth. Barao is not going to copy Aldo, they are quite different fighters, Aldo is a better kicker. Barao may well kick a lot, but I doubt he has the same success. This fight will be won on the ground.

I predict Barao will beat both Faber and D.C. Setting up a Faber vs DC III non title fight.

I got Faber here. Veeeeeery evenly matched. I don't think Barao will chop Faber down like Aldo did. Faber will get Barao down and end it via Alpha Male Guillotine in the 4th
