    It was getting annoying as the UFC hype machine talked up Joe Soto. We were reminded over and over that he was a brown belt in jiu-jitsu. That made him a dangerous grappler for TJ Dillashaw to face. Despite the fact that Renan Barao is a black belt himself and is actually a better MMA wrestler than Soto. It would have been nice if they had pointed out that Soto’s movement would be a much different challenge for Dillashaw. In truth, Soto did provide a tougher test for Dillashaw than Barao. Even though the result was almost exactly the same. What...

They were both valid points. Barao had destroyed most of his opponents, including three straight title defenses via a stoppage with two TKO’s and a submission. Those kind of wins put a fighter in the ‘best of the best’ types of discussions. That was entering into UFC 173, and many people thought those...

Both in the willingness to take the fight on essentially no notice and the way he went for and got the finish in the final round....
