    He looked pretty depressed at losing in brutal fashion to a big underdog, I think he can make a good comeback if he learns from the loss and accepts it

    A hungry Barao determined to get that belt is a frightening thought and I think with some improvements he can make it more competitive

    Personally can't pick a winner for the rematch since nobody knows how he'll react for his next fight which will be a big indicator of where he's at....he could come back like GSP after his loses to Hughes/Serra with a fire lit under him and a change up in his approach (not being reckless as he has a tendency to do) or he could not recover mentally...

    What you lot think?

    They should cut him.

    He doesn't have it anymore, sadly...

    This.

    Barao was a beast in his prime, but it's time to hang them up.

    I fucking hope so.

    He didn't look himself last night, while TJ looked amazing.

    Not sure. It's hard to come back after having your soul devoured.

    I thought he was hungry fighting TJ, and I'm sure he is gonna come back starving for that title. That was kinda Barao's thing, still being hungry. I just think the better fighter won, has nothing to do with Barao's motivation. He was plenty motivated.

    Faber had his soul devoured like 6 or 7 times recently and always comes back stronger.

    I wouldn't say his soul was devoured, he showed great heart!

    he needs to cut less weight, hes looking slow out there, being heavy isn't always good at the lower weight classes. Speed kills

    His body roamed the cage, but his soul may be lost forever. That was an ass beating of biblical proportions.

    I think Dillashaw has his number. He took his soul and he ain't giving it back. Barao can get the belt back, but only if someone else is holding it. Should move up to 145, or shit, even 155 given how he gets up to 170 ripped.
