    For me it was during the preview/countdown. They showed TJ's footwork drill. It reminded me of Machida's footwork drill. Mac has some of the fastest feet in the business. You can't hit what you can't catch; Mousasi said Mac was always one step ahead of him the entire fight.

    Footwork is really underrated on Sherdog. Talk is usually about the heaviest hands, not the fastest feet.

    "The plan was to move my feet a lot, not stand in front of him, use my angles, switch my stances up and just be the faster athlete tonight."

    Someone posted a breakdown on how to beat Barao, once I saw him doing exactly that, I had a feeling

    I knew about it when the fight was announced but didn't wanna say anything. I also didn't bet on it cause gambling is a sin.

    i had it 2-2 going into the 5th. rogan drooling all over tj made a lot of you who are easily swayed think it was one sided in dillashaw's favor. really, i was leaning barao right up until the high kick in the finishing sequence that turned it in dillashaw's favor.

    problem is, there are too many that dont know enough about mma and let rogan tell them what to think

    When he landed the overhand, seconds before that I was thinking Barao had figured him out and about to go offensive. Then, BOOOM, here comes our new champion.
