Renan Barao Reportedly Returning to Bantamweight
By FCF Staff
It looks as though Renan Barao is returning to the division where at one point, he was the UFC’s champion.
After Barao lost to TJ Dillshaw for a second time in July, 2015, the former bantamweight champ announced he was moving to featherweight. Since then, the Brazilian fighter has gone 1-1, with a loss coming to Jeremy Stephens and a win against Phillipe Nover.
According to report from Combate, Barao has decided to return to 135 pounds, since he is carrying less weight lately in between fights.
The 30 year-old Barao currently holds a record of 34-4.
