Barao confirmed to defend interim bantamweight title


With UFC bantamweight champion Dominick Cruz on the shelf for several more months, interim champ Renan Barao will next defend his belt against Michael McDonald in early 2013.

Cruz’s injury was expected to get him back in action in the first part of next year, but a setback put him on the surgeon’s table once again, and further delayed his return to action.

In his absence, the UFC already crowned an interim champion in Renan Barao, and now the 135lb title holder will defend his belt.

UFC President Dana White confirmed the news via UFC Tonight on Fuel TV on Tuesday evening.
