    How can he beat Barao? I literally have no idea how can he win this fight. I'd give him a 1% chance to win. Barao tko round 1

    He has a pretty nice head kick.

    If he were to win I would think it would be by KO.

    I think he can outstrike him.

    I don't think he will, but if he's going to beat Barao that's probably how he does it

    I have Barao sub Rd 1.


    Don't know,

    Injury the most likely method, Dillishaw is very good everywhere, Barao is excellent everywhere.

    Dillashaw has more 1 shot KO power than Faber so he has a punchers chance. Faber has better wrestling IMO and subs but Dillashaw could stun him and batch a choke. I would say Dillashaw has a better chance to beat Barao than Caceras does to beat Faber.

    agreed, It's been a pleasure to watch his progression from TUF. Especially the creativity of his striking. Really like his head kick set ups.

    That being said I think he's gonna do a lot better than people are giving him credit for. Pretty excited for this fight, wish TJ had a couple more tune up fights though. Don't think he's ready yet.

    In my book, yep. Just like Belfort vs. Couture II.

    Constantly using his footwork to create openings, attack at one angle and exit at another . Never stand directly in front of barao. I can see tj frustrating Barao a lot.
