Well, if Urijah did suffer a broken rib in the second round I can see how that affected his fight.
Whoever did the play by play on this is on crack. Styles make fights...Barao was mainly a counter striker tonight and it worked for him. I believe that Faber can beat Cruz and I believe that Cruz will pose problems for Barao.
