Barao: I’m ready for anything


Renan Barao earned and defended his UFC interim championship, but is happy to now be called the undisputed champion. His next fight is a rematch with Urijah Faber, but he expects a tough challenge and is ready for anything:

“Actually, I think he’s improved in his standup fighting,” Barao said. “He’s very resilient and a tough guy. He can take punches and he’s difficult to knock out. He looked great in his last fight. But if I had to say something he’s improved on, I’d say his standup.

“For sure, he’ll come with a different strategy. But I’m ready for anything. I’m ready for the standup, I’m ready for the ground. I’m training hard for this, so I don’t care (where he wants it to go).”

I like the Cali Kid, but he will get pounded again just like the last time.

I hope Faber's whole legacy rides on getting that UFC strap!
