Then and Now: What has changed in MMA since 2005?

A long term dynamic develops in every sport that sticks around for a while. A section of the fan base will inevitably compare the play of today to their heroes from yesteryear.  Whether it is the baseball fan that longs for the day where they didn’t have to worry about someone using performance enhancing drugs after every home run, or the football fan that yearns for the era of hard hitting and less complaining in the NFL.

Brazilian phenom Renan Barao extended his unbeaten streak tonight with a decisive unanimous decision victory over opponent Urijah Faber. Faber as always came out with a lot of motion and speed, but he was just unable to find an opening in the defense of Barao. Barao used a lot of kicks as expected, utilizing great Muay Thai leg kicks similar to Jose Aldo. The kicks seemed to cause Faber's leg to swell up as the fight wore on. Barao also attempted many headkicks and even high spinning back-kicks, showing a
