The UFC recently announced that Renan Barao versus TJ Dillashaw would serve as the main event of UFC 173 after the Weidman/Machida bout was moved to UFC 175.

Dillashaw knows going into the fight he wasn't the first choice for a bantamweight title shot and that he'll be a big underdog, but believes superior cardio will help him defeat Barao. Dillashaw was a guest on a recent episode of the MMA Hour and discussed the fight:

"I've never been the underdog in any of my fights, so it takes all the pressure off. I have nothing to lose and everything to gain ... It's going to be a barnburner and I'm going to upset Barao and shock the world. Everything's going to change from there."

"Absolutely, I mean I've always been impressed with him before he was even the champ. He's very well rounded, he's explosive, he's huge. He's big for the weight class, you know, but I also think that's his downfall. I don't think he's going to have the cardio."

The key to not getting beat by Barao is not fighting him. The guy is vastly underrated. I don't see anyone beating him. Phone Post

Cardio is the key? Faber could probably go 25 rounds and that did not help him. Phone Post 3.0

Barao is p4p #1 imo, but TJ's a beast. I don't think he'll win, but I expect a good fight. Barao by third round KO I think.

And TJ, Barao hasn't really shown a cardio weakness. You just need to focus on not getting finished lol.

TJ seems like a good dude, and he's a great fighter, but I really don't see this ending any other way than Barao via some prime 1978 Michael Myers on Halloween night type shit. Phone Post 3.0

I like TJ but this is not a good matchup for him.

Barao isn't a good matchup for anyone. Phone Post 3.0

Cause it didnt go that long stupid. TJ is talking about surviving the first few rounds where he's most dangerous. Phone Post 3.0
The first one did, guy. That fight probably happened before you started watching MMA though.. Phone Post 3.0
