I think most people are thinking Cruz, but it will be a very close fight.

I see Cruz' abscense being his downfall, his injury affects his mobility which has been his biggest strength so far as well as his reach.

As for the result it's a toss-up at this point. Too many unknowns on Cruz part, we don't know how much his injury has affected him. I guess we'll just have to wait and see. Very interesting fight.

I hope Barao wins it, because I'm a fan of his. Not hating on Cruz because he's incredibly talented and is champ for a reason. Can't wait for this

(I'm drunk btw)

Barao will win, there's no way you come off such a long layoff and serious injury/surgery and beat a guy like Barao. It just aint happening.

If Cruz doesn't lose any of his speed and footwork he wins this I think. But Barao is a killer

Seriously? Cruz would constantly land on Barao. Easy 50-45.

C'mon, nobody can tell for sure, but Barao's record is ridiculously great. Besides, Barao finishes fights way more than Cruz. The long layoff only makes the Champion's nightmares even darker.
