Less than three years ago, Barao was viewed as one of the best pound-for-pound fighters in the world. But, in his last four fights, Barao’s been defeated by TJ Dillashaw (twice) and Jeremy Stephens, and isn’t currently a top 15 ranked fighter.
Nover, meanwhile, is also looking to get back on track, following a decision loss to Zubaira Tukhugov in December.
Recently the UFC posted the video below, which features Joe Rogan previewing today’s bout. UFC FN 95 will take place in Brasilia, Brazil.
