Urijah Faber represent these cross trained athletes that does a number of things well and aided by their natural athleticism are able to implement fight stopping moves standing as well as on the ground. He is and will remain for some time an elite fighter, able to defeat most and very promotable albeit slightly affected by his recent loss ...
Renan Barao however, represents the champion caliber aspect of fighting, fluidity ... the ability to use all the learned skills when needed and in succession .. he has the condition required to make the techniques count, he has the skills to apply them well individually but most importantly ,, he has the innate ability to use them fluently.
Now we got a Brazilian title holder in the Bantam weight division, the Feather weight division, The Middle weight division and the HW division. Erick Silva has the qualities needed to capture the WW title as well. Quite interesting development.
