Renan Barão will be fighting Uriah Faber at UFC 148
A few weeks ago UFC Champion Dominick Cruz was injured during training and suffered a torn ACL. Cruz was supposed to be fighting his rival Uriah Faber(26-5-0) in the rubber match. Tonight, Dana White announced on Twitter that Brazilian star Renan Barão will be replacing Dominick Cruz at UFC 148. Dominick Cruz was able to resume his coaching position on the popular show The Ultimate Fighter, along side Uriah Faber.
Renan Barão (30-1-0-1) who is 25, has earned this opportunity for a number one contender spot by winning an amazing 29 fights in a row. Barão is coming of a spectacular KO victory over Scott Jorgensen at UFC 143 earlier this year. Barão is currently the training partner of the UFC Featherweight Champion Jose Aldo and holds a black belt in Brazilian Jujitsu.
UFC 148 is scheduled to take place July 7th at the MGM Grand Arena in Las Vegas.
