Review: 2014-02-01, good start and some nice exchanges between Renan Barao and Urijah Faber: this fight gets three stars. The Ufc bantamweight champion Renan ‘Barao’ Pegado entered this fight with a professional mma record of 31-1-0 (68% finishing rate) and he is ranked as the No.1 bantamweight in the world, he is a black belt in Brazilian jiu-jitsu and he suffered his only loss at his pro mma debut in 2005 against Joao Paulo Rodrigues de Souza.
His opponent, the 34-year-old Urijah Faber (8 years more than Barao) has an official record of 30-6-0 (80% finishing rate) and he entered as the No.2 in the same weight class, all his defeats came in title fights and the last one occurred in their previous fight against Barao, bout ended by unanimous decision in 2012 (=Barao vs Faber I). Barao vs Faber 2, main event of UFC 169, is valid for the Ufc bantamweight title, Barao’s third defense. Watch the video and rate this fight!
