I regret that you feel I'm following you around and arguing, that was never my intention. Back on point however, I don't think we can count Cruz out just yet.

He does the same thing with Ari. She argues a few of his retarded posts and he claims she is following him around. Don't mind him, he is special.

Faber didn't hurt Cruz by the way, Cruz was in the midst of his movement and that's the only reason he went down. Barao's last three fights have been underwhelming and he will be decisioned accordingly unless he decides he wants out like Bowles did when Cruz began his legendary title reign.

I see it like GSP coming back from surgery and his fight with Condit. I expect Cruz to win, but maybe with the odd scare or two. Hopefully he won't be too rusty.

If Cruz hasn't lost a step due to his ACL tear I think he wins.

If Cruz comes back fully healthy, he should beat Barao without much difficulty. I think he has the better over all striking game and won't have much trouble neutralising Barao's BJJ game with his wrestling.

Then again I did think Mcdonald was going to get the KO. I still think Mcdonald has the much more potential out of the two fighters, regardless of last nights outcome. Just gotta patch up some of those grappling holes and mix up his game a little more, he'll get the KO next time.

I think Cruz is awesome but my money will not be on him when this fight happens. He's been out too long and the nature of his injury does not bode well for the way he fights.

Meanwhile, Renan has been doing Cruz' job, and doing it rather well. Two title fights under his belt, a solid vet in Faber and a scary young fighter in McDonald, Barao has looked great.
