If he can make it a scrap...
In an interview with MMA Junkie, UFC flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson said that he thinks Urijah Faber (30-6 MMA, 6-2 UFC) can win his bantamweight title fight against champion Renan Barao (31-1 MMA, 6-0 UFC) at UFC 169. The fight takes place at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey, and Barao is a 3-1 favorite to win.
Johnson said: "My mindset on that fight is that if Urijah can go out there and make it a scrap like he did against Michael McDonald, I could see Urijah Faber winning that (fight)."
He added that it won't be easy, especially against Barao.
