Eddie Wineland Talks About The Fight Between Renan Barao and Urijah Faber
Posted by Joseph Lee on 02.01.2014



In an interview with MMA Junkie, Eddie Wineland spoke about the UFC 169 main event, a bantamweight title fight between champion Renan Barao and Urijah Faber. Here are highlights:

On striking: "I think if Faber presses forward and doesn't let him get his kicks off, he'll win the striking. I think that's where I made my mistake against Barao. I planted my feet and I let him spin and I gave him the distance to throw those kicks. If Faber presses the issue and is either all in or all out, it's going to nullify Barao's kicks."

On Faber's short notice: "I don't think it's going to effect him very much. I think Urijah is a guy who is always training. I think he's always ready for a fight and I think he knew this was probably a possibility. It only makes sense. He got four wins in a row, and if for some reason someone got hurt in this title fight, he should be the next one. I think he knew that was a possibility and he was ready for it."

On who has the X factor: "I think Faber [has the x-factor]. I said it before and I'll say it again, I agree with Dana White that he's in that Vitor Belfort zone where he's getting older, but he's getting better. His last couple fights, you look at [Michael] McDonald, he's ranked No. 3 right now. He just ran right through like McDonald didn't even matter. He just ran right through him, and that was a big statement. He's supposed to be No. 3 in the world and he made him look like he doesn't belong there. That means a lot."
