The UFC has another Brazilian champion.

It's an interim title, but a title nonetheless. Renan Barao dominated Urijah Faber for five rounds on Saturday to win the UFC's interim bantamweight belt, which was up for grabs with champion Dominick Cruz on the shelf following knee surgery. Barao cruised to win a unanimous decision with scores of 49-46, 50-45 and 49-46.

The interim bantamweight title fight served as the main event of Saturday's UFC 149 event at Scotiabank Saddledome in Calgary. It aired on pay-per-view following prelims on FX and Facebook.

Barao joins Nova Uniao teammate Jose Aldo, the UFC's featherweight champ; middleweight champ Anderson Silva; and heavyweight champ Junior Dos Santos as current UFC champions from Brazil.

I would think it would be a surprise to everybody if barao takes this.

Can you imagine Barao vs Dominick Cruz. What a slap in the face for Faber if that were the case.

That said I am rooting for Brao. But I think Faber has this easy due to experience in a 5 round fight and speed.

Please let this be a classic fight, the main card so far has been absolutely brutal to watch. I think the fans in Calgary have booed every fight, if not every round.

Bad card is baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaad

I hope Faber brings something new. He's over reliant on his natural ability.
