    All props to TJ, incredible performance.

    Barao was so much slower tonight. That really shocked me. TJ had almost a perfect fight.

    Relative.

    Place something fast next to something faster and it'll look incredibly slow.

    TJ made him look slow.

    But he definitely wasn't moving as quickly as normal.

    I don't think he ever really recovered from that first punch that dropped him.

    Barao looked really drawn at weigh-ins. But TJ looked like Mighty Mouse in there. No excuses. Barao was always going to get smoked with TJ moving like that

    Maybe because of the damage in round 1 by Tj.

    Tj was sooooo fast tho, could just be that.

    He reminded me of Chandler.

    I agree. He looked ok but was definitely moving a lot slower after that. He took a lot of other wicked head shots as well. I was impressed by his chin that he lasted till the 5th.

    TJ is definitely the faster fighter but it felt like Barao was afraid to gas.

    Do people not suspect Renan's weight cut is getting to him?
