Heading into last night’s card, Barao was coming off consecutive losses to TJ Dillashaw and Jeremy Stephens, and for the first time in years, the former 135 champ wasn’t a top 15 ranked fighter. Now, that might not change as a result of the decision win he recorded over Phillipe Nover. But with the win, Barao has got back on track and could be booked for a top ranked 145’er next.
After the bout, the UFC crew caught up with Barao, and asked him for his thoughts on the fight. You can check it out below.
