UFC Declares Renan Barao Official UFC Bantamweight Champion
Posted by Jeffrey Harris on 01.06.2014

Former UFC bantamweight champion Dominick Cruz was forced to relinquish his title due to another injury, a groin tear, and as a result the UFC has declared that interim champion Renan Barao is now the official UFC bantamweight champion on their official Twitter feed. You can check out the announcement below.

Barao won the title in July 2012 at UFC 149 when he defeated Urijah Faber. Since that time, he defended the interim belt twice against Michael McDonald and Eddie Wineland. His first fight as the undisputed UFC bantamweight champion comes at UFC 169 in February. He will face Urijah Faber again, this time for the official bantamweight championship.

UFC 169 is set for February 1 at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey.
