Monday’s shakeup in the UFC’s bantamweight division, and subsequent new main event for UFC 169, has meant a shakeup with the oddsmakers, as well.

I'll be happy to see either guy win this one, but with Faber's hands undoubtedly still injured I don't even see this fight being competitive. Unless Faber wins it's a lose-lose situation for both fighters.

Props to Faber for stepping in, but I think he's making a big mistake. I can't imagine him fighting much longer if he loses this fight.

Definitely have to hand it to Faber for stepping in. He probably could have had them push it back a few weeks so he could get a better camp in but he didn't. This might be his last crack at a title in a long time too.

The fact is, it's better for the Bantamweight division if Faber wins. A trilogy fight with Barao is what this division needs imo.
