    Bullshit.


    Granted I think he was stunned by an uppercut earlier, but he NEVER appeared right after the above punch. Alex will probably agree, every once in awhile a fighter gets in such a damn good shot, it fucks the other fighter up for the remainder of the match.

    I totally agree. Barao could barely figure out what corner he had to go to at the bell that ended round 1. And you could see the worry in his eyes for the rest of the fight. That's not to say Dillishaw wasn't putting on an incredible display though: everything that kid was throwing was landing, and his stance switching and angles were great.

    I want Cormier vs Rashad. DC is way too fixated on his right to a title shot when he hasn't dealt with any top 5 competition in the division. And it'd probably stop Jones from whining about being fed the toughest competition possible non-stop. It'd be something like: JonesvsGustaffson one event, Cormier vs Rashad headline another shortly after, if Jones keeps the belt and Cormier wins, then Jones vs Cormier, maybe Gustaffson or Teixeira vs Anthony Jhonson.

    On the other hand, TJ Fucking Dillashaw. I definetely wasn't expecting that performance. I hope Barao goes up a division, he looked horrible during weigh-ins.

    Doesn't Aldo cut a ton of weight too? If Chad Mendes won maybe Aldo would go up to make room for Barao, with prospects of fighting Pettis, Cerrone, Melendez... in lightweight.

    I'd pray for some Ludwig Magic if Aldo was willing to go up.

    He got rocked, kept fighting, but Dillishaw was tagging him at will. He gets all the respect for putting him in that cobweb fear position and keeping up the pressure for the TKO.
