    Every fighter has weaknesses but barao is a great fighter in all areas and is one of the most exciting fighters .

    That's why he's champion, that's why they're all the champs they adapt and overcome everything that's thrown at them in Tue cage. You stop barao either with plaster in your gloves or he fights a bigger guy

    The main problem as I see it is entirely different. It is mainly that Barao is DANGEROUS, in that as long as he isnt knocked the hell out he can do that to you in any move, same quality there is in fighters like Glover Teixeira, Thiago Silva and some other mainly Brasilian brawlers.
    Dillshaw can dominate, hassle and even win, but as long as he doesnt knock him out, and the fight is a long 5 round one, any second that Barao is standing he can get a brutal KO from him.
    Its a damn scary quality, that brawler mentality he has.

    I usually enjoy Jack's stuff, but to be honest I can't be bothered to read this one.

    Suck on that, Dana.

    michael mcdonald was boxing barao's head off?

    i know the kinda knockdown but other than that it wasnt that of a dominance at all

    Pickett has great boxing but Barao destroyed him in the standup. Why? Because he incorporated a lot of kicks.

    In his 1st round against Wineland he didn't use much kicks at all.

    He needs to get into the habbit of kicking boxers, and grappling kidnappers.

    Barao doesn't have a "B game", get out of here with that nonsense.

    IIRC McDonald had 2 rounds to Barao's 1 heading into the 4th

    Hope he gets food poisoning or never recovers from the weight cut?

    Those are about the only ways I see him losing in the next 5 years
     
  16. Barao is the P4P fighter in the UFC you goofs

    Why look for a weakness in Barao?
    His opponents have bigger weaknesses.
