    A fight of the night match up that can be exciting and a great indicator for a future title contention shot. Thoughts?

    Barao still looks flat footed and exhausted after the first round. Swanson beats him up over 3 rounds.

    Swanson would run circles around him.

    TBH, Barao needs 3 gimme fights to build his confidence back up again. I wouldnt be surprised if the dude would be a champion again in the future. Just need to work on some straight punches. His tdd is still 100% in the ufc, thats sick. I remember when he was heavily rocked vs Dillashaw, and Dillashaw shot deep in him, and he still stuffed it with ease.

    The only hope at beating McGregor at featherweight that being Frankie just got schooled by Aldo and Aldo looses to McGregor 10/10 times.

    I think TJ ATE Barao's soul after he stole it.

    One more fight before being deemed done. The fight with Stephens was pretty close and he did take a Nuke that KO'd the former 155lbs champ.

    Yeah, as if Cub is peaking. Frankie pretty much drowned him, revived him and drowned him again. What elite fighter gets their guard passed sixteen times? He didn't fair any better against Holloway; that was an all-around destruction. Hacran Dias is a mid-tier FW, with a pretty limited skillset, and that fight came down to the third round.

    Cub has never had good TDD, and he's not close to Barao's level on the ground. During the best stretch of Cub's career, he was still getting outgrappled by Dennis Siver. Cub would probably be the betting favorite, but this isn't a lock for him by any means.
