I see Faber defending against an aggressive Barao in the first 2 rounds, and taking over in the last 3 with his determination, and cardio (advantage). He gets a sub in the 5th.

I really haven't see Barao fight enough to know a lot about him, but I think Faber has a strong cardio advantage. For that reason alone, I will go with Faber by decision.

Rogan is sure on Barao's nuts though, like flies on shit.

Could Barao come out to a shittier song?

I'll answer that. No, he could not.

I have this feeling this may be 25 minutes of Faber surviving.

How important is a win for Faber tonight?

I started watching MMA in the days when Faber was rolling over everybody in the WEC. Times have changed like they usually do.

I don't know that much about his opponent tonight except he must be very good to get this fight.

I've always liked Faber & I think he really eds to win this fight to stay relevant as a top MMA fighter. Back in his WEC days - I saw a lot of YouTube videos that ranked him as one of the top 5 lb. for lb. guys in MMA.

In Faber's last 9 fights....his record is 5 wins & 4 losses. For some reason I can't correct the above....after the word really - the next word should be "needs".

I think he'll always be a good ambassador for the sport.

Anybody else think this is a crucial fight in the career of Faber?

logically speaking it should be, but i think even if faber loses he will still end up getting another title shot...at the end of the day he needs to settle things with cruz and if he knocks all the other contenders out theres no reason not to give him ANOTHER shot....sadly....
