But let's say he gets a tune up fight. Does it count for the title? If so then you essentially bumped Barao for another contender. If not, what happens if he loses? Now not only is the champion coming off of a loss, but it totally ruins the fight with Barao.
You do Cruz/Faber III so that if Faber win's he's a UFC champion (which I think the UFC really wants).

For me they really need to make the other three fights huge to draw any interest from me. Two title fights are nice but these will likely have 3-1/4-1 odds on the underdogs. Maybe if we are lucky we'll get Johnson/Dodson also on this card

That's a huge insult to Barao.

Faber as BW champion would be fecking ridiculous while Barao remains undefeated and destroying everyone put in front of him.

Nah the insult is to throw a former legend in their with him and have Barao humiliate him. Like say Shogun/Rampage with Jon Jones or Big Nog with Cain Velasquez.

Also big picture Faber/Barao are just waiting for Aldo to move up so one becomes the BM champion and the other contends for the FW championship.

To me I see Urijah Faber as the equivalent of Carlos Condit he's earned the title "former UFC champion" just need to figure out the politics behind it.
