Renan Barao Sees Raphael Assuncao as the Top Contender at Bantamweight Now
Posted by Jeffrey Harris on 03.20.2014

UFC bantamweight champion Renan Barao recently discussed his plans for when he wants to fight again and who he thinks deserves to be his next challenger for the belt. Below are some highlights.

Renan Barao on Raphael Assuncao as the top contender for his belt: "I think Raphael Assuncao is probably the top contender right now. He's been working hard for this, and he should get his shot. He's coming off six wins, and he's beat many guys. He deserves this. But whoever the UFC puts there, I'm prepared to go out there and do my best."

Barao on being crowned the undisputed champion: "I'm very happy. This was my goal all along and I had the opportunity to get it. It's another great achievement, and now those questions about my interim status, about being the real champion, are gone."

Barao on his plans to stay at 135: "I'm cool in this weight division. I think there's still a lot of work to do. We've always talked about this, that whatever's best for the team and whatever [Nova Uniao head coach Andre Pederneiras] felt I should do would be for the best, but I'm OK here and there's still a lot of work to do."

Barao on when he expects to fight again: "I think I'd probably like to fight at the end of June, early July. Starting June, I'll be ready to fight and keep this belt."
