I was going to go, but, with the card being decimated, I'm not sure.

If you can get tickets at a decent price I would recommend you go. The experience of a live UFC event is incredible.

This. And although there's not a whole lot of star power, there are a few fights that should be pretty entertaining, at the very least the main and co-main should be good. I'm guessing as Saturday gets closer there will be plenty of tickets that could be had for cheap.

Hard to justify paying for this on PPV, but usually the cards that look bad on paper end up rocking. I'm really intrigued to see how Delorme does on the undercard, his last two fights have been impressive to say the least.

I haven't been picking the last bunch of events so I don't figure I'd bother to start now (no need to add more work to the count). But I'll be the first to say Barao beats Faber.

I agree. I get the sense that Faber is starting to slow down.

What leads to the "slow down" comment?

I feel like he has looked excellent at each fight he's taken @135. That last fight with Cruz was razor thin & he demolished Bowles & wineland in the process also.

He could lose but it won't be because of diminishing skills, IMO. I got Faber reminding everyone why he is one of the best fighters on the planet!

Faber has looked great at 135 and as far as slowing down goes, I think there's a good chance we see Barao slow down in this particular fight. Faber has the speed advantage and great conditioning. So Barao might be chasing him a bit and he does tend to slow down as it goes to the later rounds. This being a five round fight makes it even worse for Barao.

No real concrete reason, it's just a gut feeling I have after watching his last few fights. Was very disappointed with his performance in the Wineland & Cruz fights.

I want Barao to win, but I wouldn't bet money on him. Too much of an unknown. I'm really looking forward to that fight.

Used to watch a lot of Faber in WEC after hockey games and what-not. Got me into MMA. This will be the first one I probably order as a couple of friend of mine did the same thing.
