Talk about a mismanaged career. Barao had a pretty amazing run until he fought TJ. Then he beat Mitch Magnon in a fight that was too close. Then TJ happened again. Cool. Speed kills and he cant hang with the little guys in that regard. Also his cardio suffers a lot. The guy goes to 145 and fights a pretty dangerous Jeremy Stephens. He lost a contested 29-28 decision in fight where he looked pretty good. Goes then and fight Philipe Nover.. who is not a world beater but he got a clear win. What he does after? Goes back to 135 to fight and loses 3 in a row. Last one missing weight by almost 6 pounds. His managment or the UFC should force him to fight at FW or go back to the regional circuit.
