    Nice.. hope Renan gets back on track.

    He was thrown to the wolves in his first fight at FW and did surprisingly good against a bad matchup in Jeremy Stephens.

    Make it a poll mods.

    When I saw that headline for a split second I honestly thought they meant it would be Barao vs Cyborg
     
  6. Wow, why do they hate Nover so much? This is brutal matchmaking.

    Should be a mismatch but Barao needs some wins to get his confidence back.

    Shit, talk about throwing a guy into deep water.

    I hope Barao wins but I hope Nover doesn't lose terribly.

    Barao is like 1-3 in his last 4. Give him a break, dont break him.

    Both are, both are former champs going to the middle division. Barao had weight cut problems at BW and Pettis had power problems at LW. The match-up writes itself

    I dunno. I'm still kinda shocked by the way he lost to Dillashaw and how he's looked since. I know his cut to BW was part of it, but...goddamn. Henan was a killer not so long ago.

    he's still a killer... He went up to fight the hardest hitting featherweight in the UFC who is a former LW and has a KO over the previous LW champion. He outlanded Stephens and took him down. Baraos only problem was that Stephens just hit too damn hard for him.

    I think he literally wore out his body at 135, it was a hero cut and as he aged, it just took more and more of a toll.

    For his first fight at featherweight they gave him a very tough, very big veteran - Stephens is a huge featherweight who's knocked out plenty of guys at lightweight. Judging from Barao in his debut, I think he's going to settle in and be just fine.

    Nover isn't really a UFC caliber fighter - nice guy, certainly has some talents, but he honestly belongs in a smaller org.

    Barao is most likely going to stop him in devastating fashion I think ...
