Aldo went the distance with Faber and presumably learned plenty about his style and tendencies in the process. So it doesn't come as a surprise when Barao says he's leaned on his teammate for some advice in crafting a game plan for Faber.

"We had an excellent camp down here, we have an excellent strategy and obviously we benefitted from Aldo’s input," he said through an interpreter during a Thursday teleconference. "Aldo knows how Urijah fights, and he was also able to help us devise our strategy going in to make this camp, so thank God we had an excellent camp and we’ll be very ready for this fight."

Barao is right. Having Aldo in camp is a HUGE plus.

im a faber fan because he's put on some great shows, but to be honest, i am kind of tired of see him in every big fight at bantamweight. im ready for him to get KO'd by barao and then see barao fight for the title against cruz. it just feels like we have heard nothing but cruz and fabers names for so long. this is still gonna be an exciting fight and i am very excited for it.

Yes because Aldo and Barao have similar styles.

Faber Get's his UFC belt! He will find a way!

Barao is going to spank Faber and when he's done he's going to spank Cruz too

Fabers going to win a decision, but I would pick barao against cruz stylistically

I'm a fan of Barao and would like to see him get a crack at the belt against Cruz.

This fight will be crazy good...can't wait. I'm riding the Barao hype train.
