The champ didn't get badly rocked then finished.

As I'v said before I don't think this fight is about the UFC wanting Aldo to hold the belt but rather looking to get TJ a second win over him ala JDS/Cain 3 or Chuck/Randy 3. Aldo was never the first choice as champ, Cruz or Faber were but TJ is the next best thing.

Yeah I think its too soon, not really much time for improvement so I wont be surprised if Barao gets wrecked again, there's pretty much only time to try and gameplan differently against TJ and work on that, but its honestly not much. Maybe they think they have the answer to TJ and they wanted the quick turn around so Barao can get his belt back asap.

Rooting for TJ to maul him again, then hopefully Cruz can win his next fight without injuries and we can see TJ vs Cruz late this year or something.

You bring up a good point with suspensions. Barao did get a 45 day suspension.
If he is actually adhering to that suspension then he has just over 2 months of training time.
For the first fight people were complaining that Barao didn't have enough time to prepare for the fight, get down in weight.
When the fight was announced it was 6 weeks after the 1st fight and he was on suspension. I wonder how much weight he had put on by July 4th. You also have to figure he probably didn't think he'd have a fight scheduled this soon.

Was that the initial or final suspension?

It's ridiculous at how quickly I realized it's coming up after looking up the event schedules. It's like they gave him the contract to sign the night of the first fight. I'm glad there's no other fight I want to see on the card because I will not be buying it and supporting this undeserved crap.

Yeah, for those that believe that Barao's "short" turnaround after the Faber battle had something to do with how the first fight with Dillashaw fight shouldn't feel hopeful about the rematch.
