He tore his ACL in May so I'd say February is a good guess.

I think it's a pretty even matchup but I give Cruz a definite edge in grappling. That doesn't mean he will outclass Barao but I don't think Barao's way of winning is by grappling. Not sure who I'm rooting for either, I like them both. May the better fighter win.

It really comes down to how his surgery went and how quickly he can rehab the knee back to where he can fight again.

As for who will win. This is a tough match. Cruz has very tricky striking. His footwork and weird angles that he uses makes it somewhat of a guessing game at times. The thing with Barao is that he is just such an explosive striker unlike anyone Cruz has faced. Definitely a good one but I don't really know who to pick.

I think the fight will be this summer of 13... I got Barao by UD...Cruz has nothing to offer a fighter like him. Barao is just as fast, has more power, better standing, better submissons. The only advantages I give to Cruz is his footwork and wrestling. But I don't know if anyone at 135 can take Barao down.....

I can easily imagine barao taking the belt and ruling the division with an iron fist
I wouldn't even be surprised if he enters the fight as a favorite. he really got tons of hype behind him.

Renan Barao is a freaking animal, he looked great against Faber and that was a huge step up in competition for him, hell I questioned if he could rise to the occasion but man did he ever. I really don't see Cruz doing much better than Faber did. Barao is gonna run BW for a long time.

Come on man, how can you say that? Cruz is a good wrestler but he's not good enough to get Barao down or hold him there on the odd chance that he does. Second of all Cruz would want absolutely no part of Barao's BJJ, it's no secret that Cruz's weakness is BJJ and Renan is a high level blackbelt.

Renan is just a horrible, horrible matchup for Dominick, it's absolutely ridiculous. I was a little worried before the Faber fight because he's an "unsubmittable wrestler", IMO Faber is the harder fight for Barao than Dominick.

Cruz will bob and weave his way into a high knee from Barao and either be finished with strikes or an armbar or rear naked.

I wonder if Barao will take a fight first.

I think Barao beat Cruz. But it will probably be a solid fight.

Nah, they've already said he's waiting for Cruz.

This would be a good headliner for a FOX card in April.
