Good fight at the end of a seriously weak card.

Barao did really well against a seriously tough opponent, and it wouldn't surprise me to learn that a decision victory was the game plan for the fight. Faber is pretty hard to finish, and Barao has never been 5 rounds before. He's about to fight a guy who has been 5 rounds multiple times, so I'm guessing they wanted him to get the experience in the later rounds.
Makes sense.

it was harsh I thought, Perosh was controlling the fight until he dropped his hands and got caught. I'm still a Perosh fan after this, anyone can get caught by a big shot.
