Doesn't Faber always look good against opponents that aren't champs? Even though faber has looked good since losing to Barao, I think we have to consider the fact that the guys he has been fighting aren't on the same level as Cruz or Barao (or Faber for that matter). It's easy to look good against lesser competition.

But we all saw what that risk resulted. Not a good strategy against Barão.

I think so. Honestly, I thought the 2nd Cruz/Faber fight was razor close. Dominick did absolutely nothing to hurt Faber. But I guess that's just Cruz style.

I feel Faber has evolved with Ludwig as coach.

you dont think he needs to close the distance and instead stay at distance and give barao a good chance to kick?

McDonald dropped Barao and Faber dropped McDonald 3 times.

Faber dominantly beat him once before and lost a close rematch by points. Of course he could, he's the better fighter.
