    This isn't to take anything away from Dillishaw. His performance was one of the best I've ever seen from such a huge underdog. Still, I have to wonder if Barao took him lightly the same way most of us fans did.

    If Barao got an immediate rematch who would you favor?

    Tough to say, as dominant as Dillashaw was tonight.

    Dillashaw. I would not count Barao out. He remains a great fighter.

    I think it would be a better fight than this; all it takes for Barao is one strike.

    Barao, but it'd be another great fight.

    You have to favor Dillashaw but I don't think we saw Barao's best tonight

    Dillashaw. He won everything. Barao would still probably be Baron Skeleton at the weigh ins.

    Its very hard to favour someone after that kind of beating. It wasnt one big strike, it was domination over 20 mins. No matter what fighters say anyone who dominates you like that will put serious doubt in your mind next time you fight them

    Would have to be TJ, but I wouldn't count Renan out at all

    Barao needs some serious improvement but I think he could win the next

    That's exactly what I was thinking all through this fight. I didn't really care who won going in but it's always nice to root for such a big underdog. I was worried after the first round that Dillishaw would get cocky and walk in to something.

    I do think Barao took him lightly. His quotes about Dillishaw thinking he was a striker when he's not made that pretty obvious.
