    Indeed. This is what should have been the case considering it will be 2 1/3 year by the time Cruz next fights.

    A sentiment I also share. I guess he is special like that.

    In this day and age, no reason Cruz doesnt get the best people to rehab him to 100%.

    Barao might win but he won't smash Cruz. Barao is just not a guy that goes out there and smashes people.

    If Cruz is 100% (unlikely) he beats Barao 10 out of 10 times. His style is just horrible for Barao. Barao has good striking but he kind of depends on the guy staying in his range and doesn't hunt people down. Cruz will never be in range longer then a few moments if he is healthy. In order to beat Cruz you have to hunt him down, take out his legs and put him up against the cage. Barao does not do any of those things. But I think his leg will be a huge issue which will mean his style may be affected and Barao may pick up the find via decision.

    Hopefully he comes back 100% because then we can start the talks of Cruz v. Aldo again.

    I wonder how Cruz' leg atrophy has improved as of late.

    i agree... no way they can have this fight as a headliner due to the injuries they have had in the past few years...

    Glover/Jones LHW title
    Cruz/Barao BW title

    Sounds like a good Super Bowl card to me.
