I think Barbiza has solid (defensive) ground game and TDD, but his major flaw is he is not protecting his face while defending the TD. JDS syndrome.

Ooohhhh this fight is AWESOME.

Cerrone has this, if he doesn't start slow like someone said above. He'll need to mix everything together. Edson's stand up is amazing. Can't see this fight not being exciting.

I think if Cerrone shows up well trained, Edson's questionable chin is going to get tested...

Either way a great fight and I'm very excited to see how it plays out.

I think Cerrone takes it by being the more well rounded fighter.

If Barboza gets tagged in a pure striking match with Cerrone, I'll be surprised, because he uses his superior movement and devastating leg kicks to maintain a safe distance. I can see Cerrone finding his way by mixing up things and attempting some TDs, though.

Tentatively picking Cerrone. Hope he doesn't choke this time round.

Hard to pick cerrone here. Cerrone is a crowd pleaser. He will stand and bang with anyone. The last time cerrone fought a guy with speed and power it was pettis.. and we all know what happened there. It's great match making and both guys have alot to gain and to prove in this fight. I'm sure its going to be a great fight and definitely a perfect match up to headline a fox card.

Bendo | Aldo | Cerrone | Vitor | Fedor | Cormier

But Cerrone wasn't drinking beer and wake boarding for that fight...

He claims he has re-dedicated himself so I'm willing to believe it until he shows otherwise.

Cerrone via better chin.

Barboza just doesn't have the tools to be a true contender and will get KOed here.
