Barao should be able to stop TJ in the first and Mizugaki/Cisco, Varner/Krause and Holdsworth/Camus should be good fights.

So I guess in the case of Faber,  those who can't teach those that that can and very well   I thought TJ had a really small chance to make it a war but not a complete 5 round domination.  Even Barao in the middle in the 1st had this "oh shit" look on him.  Probably the most punishment he has taken ever in any form

I wasn't watching the pre fight analysis stuff, but I saw on Twitter that Chael said he had a bad weight cut (or had trouble making weight) before the PPV started.
