    Fans are excited for this fight but Cruz is coming back after TWO YEARS with back to back ACL injuries.Barao is going to smash him and it wont even be competitive.
    The cruz we're going to see will be nothing like the cruz of old.

    I have to disagree with you I don't see Barao smashing Cruz like you say.

    I think it will be fairly competitive, but Barao definitely has the chance to finish Cruz.

    Cruz will have terrible ringrust and his footwork wont be as good as it was.
    Those are just 2 issues after the long layoff.

    People were saying the same thing about GSP, but we all know how his fight with Condit turned out. When you're a gifted fighter, a 2 year lay-off won't come into play. I expect to see the same Cruz. I just feel Barao will win, regardless of a lay-off.

    Cmon man,it's a good enough assumption to make after more than 2 years.

    If Cruz recovers well, it'll be competitive. If one leg remains the size of his arms, Barao is gonna decimate him.

    I think before the injury if they fought when cruz was fully healthy with no ring rust, Barao would smash cruz. I just think he is better everywhere. Add in the two year layoff and cruz's style relying heavily on trusting your movement, I'm with the TS on this one.

    People are out of their minds if they think Cruz is going to come in after 2 ACL surgeries and over 2 years without a fight and do anything but get destroyed by Barao. The UFC needs to do Cruz a favor and strip him of the belt and let him fight somebody in the lower edge of the top 10 so he can get comfortable again before stepping in there with a killer like Barao.

    GSP wasn't out for over 2 years, and he wasn't coming back against a guy that was arguably better than him before the injury. On top of that Cruz has had 2 ACL surgeries, not 1. Cruz also depends on movement and speed more than any fighter in the UFC. It's just not the same thing.
