Ludwig Thinks Faber Should Get Immediate Rematch With Barao

“He didn’t really lose this time, though, it was a bad stoppage. If he went out there and got dominated and got his ass beat or got submitted or got stopped, like knocked out cold or the referee didn’t pull him away when he should have stopped the fight, then you’d have a valid point, but right now you don’t have a valid point because he lost to him the first [time] in a very close fight, a decision. This time it was a premature stoppage — everybody agrees. Because of this point in particular, the way it was stopped, there should be a third fight.”

“I don’t think Urijah even needs to have another fight to go back to Barao. I think they should redo it, but of course I’m not the promoter. I’m not the one dealing with the P.R. relations and such, so I think what they would like to do is have Urijah do one more fight, maybe do one more fight, maybe in the summer or so, or maybe in the spring or something, do another fight, get a win and then fight Barao again in the summer.”

In a recent interview with, the man who transformed Team Alpha Male, Duane ‘Bang’ Ludwig, shared his thoughts on last weekend’s main event between Urijah Faber and Renan Barao.

Is he right? Should the UFC grant Faber an immediate rematch?

    I disagree, Urijah was getting punched about. The stoppage was early but was coming anyways. And im not being a Barao nut hugger here, i wanted Faber to win the fight, he’s the man! But i have to be honest and if it didnt get stopped there, i think Faber wouldve got hurt!

    I agree a rematch is in order.

    Yep, immediate rematch. Faber wasn’t allowed to get laid out cold or come back to beat him. One round doesn’t make a fight.
