Barao might not be allowed to wait for Cruz

Ultimate Fighting Championship or the UFC’s interim Bantamweight champion Renan Barao might expect a visit from the president of the UFC Dana White after he stated during last Saturday UFC 154: St. Pierre vs. Condit fight card that he might well have to defend his title before the UFC Bantamweight champion Dominick Cruz actually makes his return to the ring. Barao had stated during his previous interviews that he wished to wait for the return of the champion so that he could have a title unification match against him in the same way Carlos Condit was allowed to wait for the return of Georges St. Pierre.

But now, it seems that Barao will not have his wishes granted as White spoke to the media when he was in attendance during GSP’s successful reclamation of the UFC Welterweight Championship at UFC 154 in Montreal, Canada. The UFC Bantamweight Championship was set to be defended by Dominick Cruz earlier in the year against his arch nemesis Urijah Faber before an unfortunate accident forced him to pull out of the match.

This prompted to hand Faber and Barao an opportunity to contend for the interim title and Barao defeated his opponent easily to claim the title. Speaking to the media, Dana White admitted that he and his partners were having discussions about Renan Barao about his title and added that it is inconvenient if he wants to wait for the return of Dominick Cruz, because the UFC is going to him and he must put the title on the line.

Barao, who has a Mixed Martial Arts record of 29-1 is eager to go head to head against one of the best Bantamweights fighters in the world but he must manage to hold on to the title if he wants to face him.

Barao Open to Fights

With Renan Barao and Urijah Faber set to go head to head against each other at UFC 149: Faber v/s Barao for the interim Ultimate Fighting Championship or the UFC Bantamweight Championship, it represents a chance for both of them to land themselves straight into the title picture as far as the unification of the title is concerned with current champion Dominick Cruz out with an injury. When asked whether he will be willing to wait for the champion to get back to full fitness a few weeks ago, Barao had stated that he would not step inside the UFC Octagon until The Dominator returns to the company, if he wins the interim title.

But now, it seems that Barao has changed his stance somewhat. According to the latest statements made by Barao, he will fight if the situation requires him to fight before the return of the champion Dominick Cruz to the company after he is completely healed. Speaking to MMAJunkie.com, Barao made it clear that he is employed by the UFC and he is employed as a fighter. And that means that he will step into the ring with anyone. He went on to add that if he could wait for him, he will because he wants to fight someone as The Dominator, who is referred to as a ‘top athlete’.

Barao further commented that he wants to fight the very best in the business and if that means he will have to fight someone else while he waits for Cruz to get back into the ring that would be no problem at all.

Barao, who is still undefeated as a professional fighter, is going to enter his first main event fight but everyone believes that his true test will come when Dominick Cruz returns to the UFC.
