Regardless he fought and got dominated. If he was healthy enough to fight the. He was healthy enough to lose.

Great fighter though. Can't wait to see who barao takes on next. Phone Post 3.0

Dillashaw bringing the fight out of the gate leading to the knockdown while Barao was still feeling it out, paired with Dillashaw never letting off the pressure afterward, pushed Barao into a tentative performance where he never established his game.

That's why Barao lost IMO.

I was rooting for Barao to the very end, but Dillashaw put on an impressive performance. If it was what Joe Rogan objectively considers "the best performance [he's] ever seen," then I can't help but question how high he has been at past events, but it was an impressive performance nonetheless.

to be fair and maybe someone can post pic, there was a shot of him in the locker room right before the fight and I even said to myself he looks like shit. I believe it was the part where the camera was right in front of him and he looked behind him as if the camera was looking at something else.

Given Dillashaw's underdog status and then way in which he dominated and then finished Barao I don't think Rogan is off at all. Phone Post 3.0

Should have laid some last minute money down on Dillashaw!

One of the best performances I've ever seen to be honest. And the Boston pizza I was at wasn't even playing the sound for half the fight. Phone Post 3.0

FeelinFroggy - Honestly, I loved seeing TJ beat Barao, but Barao looked off tonight, and not just because TJ was bringing it. I mean, from the very start of the fight, Barao looked like 20-30% slower with his strikes and entire movement...you don't have to be an apologist to acknowledge that barao was a shell of himself. I mean, seriously, has TJ ever looked this impressive before? it was like bizarro TJ vs. bizarro Barao.
He was bound to have an off night at some point man, it just so happened dillishaw gave the fight of his life as well.

Can't wait to see these guys meet again in the cage, fireworks. Phone Post 3.0

Yeah I agree he looked off. I don't think the 160 shots had anything to do with it though. That Brazilian flu is straight nasty!

TJ Dillashaw new nickname is the Brazilian Flu! Phone Post 3.0

I feel the same way about barao's performance tonight .......he was supposed to be on MMAJunkie on Friday but didn't make It because of the weight cut .... I think the weight cut is hurting him a lot

We should just call it that and establish it WELL BEFORE we give them the chance to conjure up their bullshit excuses.

I won't take anything away from TJ but Barao did seem off.

We'll have to wait and see what comes of it if he really was ill or the like.

Bummer for something like that to happen in a title fight.
