    Nice to see brazilians giving him props. Usually fighters catch a lot of shit from their brazilians fans when they lose in dominant fashion.

    Barao is tough as hell, he went out on his shield, I admire that. He'll come back stronger.

    That is awesome, it probably made his day knowing that his fans are still behind him like that.

    Barao doesn't remember anything after the first round. Someone ask him and make sure he is still with us, mentally. :icon_chee

    That's what's up.
    Great sportsmanship from the Brazilian fans. Other fans could learn a thing or two from this.

    They were just eager to share with him their excuses.

    He deserves every bit of it. Great win streak, he lost and made no excuses. He'll be back and has a strong chance at getting the belt back, and even if not he always puts on a great fight.

    I hope so, he was a good champ/interim champ and beat some top fighters. One loss to another top fighter shouldn't dent his fanbase too much.

    In bed with your bitch, watching game of thrones,
    That's actually very cool. I'm sure it brightened him up a bit.
    Brazil's people are very strange imo but throughout all of the violence and drama you hear from that place, it seems they really do love and respect one another in general.

    Most of them probably haven't even seen they fight yet. Playing in the mud and shit.
