    Damn I never thought of this fight. Pretty sick matchup, no clue how it would go, I can see the fight going a bunch of different ways with either guy winning at the end

    It would be interesting to see if MM could use his speed to outpoint him for 5 rds

    Renan takes him down and subs him. I wouldn't predict a KO only because Mighty Mouse is so good at sticking and moving. Has he ever even been caught clean with a shot?

    Barao. He's bigger much more powerful and fast enough where he'd catch MM. MM might have some early success like Wineland did but Barao will finish him.

    It'd be a good matchup for Barao to prepare for a dancer like Cruz.

    It would be a real game of cat and mouse and you know how that goes if the mouse can stay away it wins but if it can't it gets eaten.

    might be remembering wrong but i THINK pickett got some good shots, also dodson got him, maybe joe b.

    edit: actually pretty sure he's been hit clean in a bunch of his fights, not like ROCKED but hit clean, yeah.

    I can only remember that one significant moment that Moraga threw the flying knee at MM in the 4th round that busted his nose open if I remembered correctly.

    The Dodson fight is the most obvious but I think the Moraga hit did more damage.

    I gotta find that fight. I've never seen it, but I've heard it was good.

    Barao is a HUGE bantamweight... he'd kill Johnson.

    Barao would submit MM with ease.

    Barao would absolutely violate Mighty Mouse.

    Please make it happen.

    I think it was the best FLW fight I've seen so far. That and MM/McCall were great.

    Cruz spanked Mighty Mouse for 5 rounds... including out-speeding him.

    Dodson is also faster than explosive diarrhea. I don't think Renan has that kind of speed

    As a Cruz fan I would say that MM hand the faster stand up. Cruz outwrestled him and showed how well rounded he was in that fight. It would have been great if he didn't get injured and complete the trilogy with Faber then fought Barao.
