Sucks for Faber. He may not get another shot because of that bs stoppage

So that makes him 0-2 against Barao who will probably have that belt until Faber retires.

It would have been nice to actually see the outcome of a fight in that title shot.

Faber is pretty clear top 2-3 and seems to walk thru top ten guys. We won't see a rematch so he is going to have to hope someone beats Barao, which ain't happening.

What a fucking letdown.

Happens. Barao may move up though.

Let's wait and see if Dana rants and raves about it before we write Faber's title hopes off completely.

I felt bad for him. He couldn't move his left hand unless he wanted to get hit and his right was stuck in under a leg. Guess he could of sprawled and tried to jump up.

I expect Aldo and Barao to both move up.

I think Cruz v Faber 3 for the 135 belt might happen at some junction.

We have the benefit of different camera angles and replays. Herb had to make that call on the spot, and it's easy to see why he thought that Faber wasn't intelligently defending himself.

Yeah it kind of sucks. Maybe he'll at least be considered in the next contender fight kind of thing.

Faber is still the #2-#3 BW in the UFC. He won't fight Dillashaw and I really don't see any other BW that would give him fits.
