    Why?

    He convincingly lost the first fight and looked like shit against Gagnon.

    Not 100% sure but aren't Faber and Dillashaw on the same team?

    Barao is gonna get slaughtered worse this time if true.

    The Barao/Gagnon fight has got to be one of the weakest performances to ever get a title shot over.

    Because Cruz and Assuncao are hurt. Who else should it be?

    You ask why Barao gets the next shot? Well Im gonna go out on a limb and say that Cruz and Assuncao being injured might have something to do with it.

    And Barao is more deserving of the shot for his win over Gagnon than Faber's over Rivera guys. Not even close.

    I'd rather MM/Dillashaw.

    To be fair, Shields already had the title shot locked after beating Hendo. Kampmann was just initiation.

    At least he didn't have to gouge his opponent's eye to win :rolleyes:

    Barao needs another fight tbh. His performance against Gagnon doesn't show there will be a difference from the first fight.

    Give the ts to Faber, should be funny to watch.

    So when a contender isn't ready we just hand it to somebody who clearly isn't ready/worthy?

    They'll be surprised this sells like 130k PPV's even though the outcome is predictable and nobody wants to see it

    Finally, Faber gets a shot at the strap.

    Faber vs TJ should be fun if they're willing to fight each other.
