    Both were elite strikers on a major tear before suffering 2 devastating losses. Do you like this fight for Barao's introduction to 145 if he moves up, or would you prefer an easier matchup for one or both fighters? I suppose it could be Cub's Swansong if he loses.

    I would prefer an easier match up for both guys. I love em both and don't want to see either lose in their next fight.

    I agree. It is a good matchup, but think that the UFC would prefer that both guys get back on track versus separate opponents before pairing them up.

    Swanson vs. someone like Cole Miller, Thiago Tavares or Dennis Bermudez

    Barao (if he moves up) vs. someone like Sam Sicilia, loser of Kikuno/Brandao, or Darren Elkins

    No I'm saying since he was already talking about retirement, another loss might send him over the brink.
