Renan Barao Prepares For TJ Dillashaw

Been a long time since Barao will step into the cage as a challenger but after losing his belt to TJ Dillashaw at UFC 173 I am sure we will be seeing a very hungry Renan come August 30th at UFC 177. Tough to argue that Barao does not deserve an immediate title shot although he was dominated by Dillashaw in a way that few, if any could have anticipated. One thing is for sure, training...

Renan Barao ‘Probably’ Gets Automatic Rematch with T.J. Dillashaw

Well, I guess the UFC bantamweight division just isn’t that deep. Or, the UFC invested so much time and energy in pumping former 135-pound champ Renan Barao (pictured) as the world’s best pound-for-pound fighter before getting dominated by T.J. Dillashaw last month that they want a better return on their investment. Either way, it appears Part II is right around the corner. UFC...
