UFC bantamweight contender Renan Barao (28-1 MMA, 3-0 UFC) currently boasts one of the sport's all-time-best win streaks after downing 28 straight opponents.

Worth a mention, says his upcoming opponent, Urijah Faber (26-5 MMA, 2-1 UFC), but "The California Kid" warns against putting too much stock in the gaudy run.

"People give Barao a lot of credit for a 28-fight win streak, which is incredible, but which out of those 28 guys would I have lost to?" Faber asked MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com). "None of them. He's never beat anybody like me, so this is going to to be the biggest test of his life."

UFC 148 takes place July 7 at MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. Main-card fights air live on pay-per-view while FX and Facebook are expected to carry the prelims.

I don't like Faber but I happen to agree with him on this...

Faber by unanimous decision or submission. Most likely submission.

I have Barao all day in this one... I've been on the wagon for a few years now, the guy is just insane.

Barao via lake TKO, maybe 4th or 5th.

Faber stood in front of Jose Aldo for 5 rounds and took everything Jose had. Faber is as tough as they come, Barao won't finish Faber. Faber has found his power at 135 he has looked great at 135. Faber via submission is my guess, Alpha Male choke!!


I don't like Faber at all, I am a Cruz die-hard, but Barao's fight against Scotty didn't impress me, unlike Fabers fight with Bowles.

I agree. Although, I will say that Aldo did ease up considerably on Faber later in the fight when he had already severely hobbled him.

Almost like he wanted to punish him for longer, rather than knock him out.
Didn't Faber's cornerman run in and carry him to his seat in between rounds?
