And his thoughts on Dominick Cruz…
- Renan Barao recently spoke about his long run without a loss and more. Here are the highlights…
On Remembering His Last (and only) Loss: "I remember, so I never want to have that feeling again ever. When it happened, I think it was a good thing, because I learned a lot from having lost and I learned about coming back. I also learned to keep working so that it doesn't happen again."
On His Work Ethic: "I think this is all the fruit of my labor. I've always been a hard worker. I've always believed that I could be successful, and the people around me also believed it, too. My grandparents, who basically raised me, said if I dedicated myself and trained I would be successful and provide my family with a better life."
On His Long Winning Streak: "I believe in my training and showing my work, so when I'm in there, it doesn't even cross my mind," Barao said. "I can only think about that fight and giving it my best and coming out victorious."
On Dominick Cruz: "I just hope he recovers and comes back 100% so we can fight each other," he said. "A lot of people want to see this fight happen, including me."
