    Has there ever been a faster fall from anyone in MMA?

    is this a good thing? he probably could have signed to some org in brazil and made the same money. this serbian org must be cutting some checks if he is going to go over there evey time he fights.

    I still remember his spinning back kick KO of Wineland like it was yesterday.

    When he finished McDonald with a arm triangle choke.

    Still a fan.

    Julio Cesar Neves?

    He got that record fighting nobodies though, so its no surprise he got a loss from someone decent (RIP Jordan Parsons).

    Barao whopped elites' asses, won a belt than had 10 years' worth of decline in the space of like 3 months.

    He beat Faber twice and a bunch of enhancement talents.

    Pickett, Jorgensen & McDonald were still good when Barao fought them, although Jorgensen had a bad run after that fight too, so maybe their fight was the start of his slump.

    Still though, just the extent of Barao's fall from grace was bloody huge

    BJ reigned as the LW champ for a minute and won higher division belts, not to mention he was fighting bigger dudes most of his career, not comparable~

    I think a lot of it was just that he had an inflated record.

    Who were these bigger dudes? He fought machida. The last ten years he was getting his ass kicked in the UFC there were weight limits.

    all the welterweights he fought, BJ penn is like 145, you can make the case that he fought 2 weight classes up. and not just anybody, he fought Hughes, GSP, Rory, FItch... all killers of the division. what did Barao do???

    Defended his belt more than BJ.

    And also doesn't hold the biggest losing streak in UFC history.

    Two wins over Faber

    BJ last won a fight in 2010.

    Over a 300 year old Matt Hughes. They gifted him a swansong and he proceeded to go get his ass kicked for ten more years.

    Faber just suck against Nova Uniao guys, same shit happened vs Aldo.

    BJ's been fighting higher level for longer periods of time.

    plus Barao's losing streak is about the same, he has 1 decision win after Dillashaw took his soul.

    I've had to point this out before, although I am sure USADA was a factor, but my guess is that the main factor was getting sent to hell in the two fights vs TJ.

    Not many fighters have suffered two beatings like that, with a fight in between, in the space of a little over a year. It's not like he was quickly KOd - he was bashed into the 5th round before getting KOd in the first fight, and bashed into the 4th round before getting KOd in the second. You can't expect that a fighter would necessarily be the same after those fights.

    Good point. Roided up TJ did Barao no favors.
