I heard this a lot. I like most people, thought he was the underdog, but only because of how good and dominant Barao has been for so long. But to me, it was never a squash match, and I told all my friends at the bar with me. They were like "Who is this guy?" I'll admit I hadn't seen much of Dillashaw, but I did see his amazing performance vs Mike Easton in January and I was IMMEDIATELY impressed with how technical his striking was. I knew the guy was a serious threat based just off the level of his technique. I get the impression that most people thought this was a squash match along the lines of Griffin vs Silva, and I'm a little disappointed in my fellow MMA fans for not seeing just how great Dillashaw was before this fight.
