At 100% for both fighters, I'd give the edge to Cruz. Barao has really good killer instincts, but Cruz's approach towards a fight is methodical, his fight psychology, strategy and mental game is something Barao has failed to catch up to yet.

cruse is a point fighter, he will bounce around for about 3 rounds until barao lands the big shot

I still think Wineland could be a tough matchup for Barao.

I think it was the other way around. Barao landed over 60% of his strikes in the first round. 28 significant strikes. Versus the 10 significant strikes by Wineland, who was missing almost every thing he threw.

Barao. Cruz's game was based on his speed and his reach. Barao's got a longer reach is crazy fast and can take Cruz down with ease. He can also finish him with his Muay Thai. Cruz also is coming off an injury that took him two years to heal from and is a speed base fighter. I'm sorry Cruz fans but Cruz just won't be a match for Barao.

Bulk of Cruz success seems to be the result of hard, yet smart, extremely well thought of work.

So with his work ethics, and stuff, I guess it's possible for him to prepare perfectly, against all odds, getting his knees close to 100%, with cardio, movement etc. all on point.

Everything else is against him though.

With his style, getting rusty, out of rhythm, out of touch with fighting for so long...

Against a fighter who needs just one mistake of your to ruin you.
