Most of them are Illuminati as well.

It is what politicians call bad optics.

4. He is a little weird and awkward. Mayhem Miller of all people said Caraway was "bananas". It is probably more a reason for compassion than for mockery, but this is the internet.
This is excellent insight. If you take all the outside the cage activities away he has shown grace inside the cage. He is a solid young prospect with ceiling left before he caps out.

How good can he get? No clue but really for people to dismiss a guy who gave Mizugaki everything he could handle is laughable. He is a skilled ground fighter with improving stand up nothing more nothing less.

I'll take Barao v Anyone just to get him back on track but as I said before I don't like rematches so soon I wanna 2 or 3 good wins before a title shot

Absolutely not lol. Barao should sit out for a minute until Cruz is healthy. Barao is enough of a star that he should only be fighting other stars, in fights that justify the title shot he gets afterward should he win them. Like if they want to book a third fight with Faber, I'd be ok with it. Otherwise, breathe some life back in the Fernandes-UFC rumors.

I'm not of the contingent that just wants to see Caraway fed to one of the killers out at BW, but those seem to be the only options. A fight with Alcantara makes sense. I think Johnny Eduardo (The guy who KO'd Wineland lol) makes more sense. The only reasonable fight for Caraway that he doesn't get smashed in is another round with Mizugaki.

Seems like an odd incident to make up out of the blue. Especially when it happened in a public place. Zingano doesn't strike me as a shit stirrer. And Carraway being a douche doesnt help his case.

Basically, unsubstantiated claims... but MMA fans seem to always need to hate someone.

Awful matchup for Caraway, Barao would crush him!
