Review: 2013-02-16, Renan Pegado vs Michael McDonald gets three stars only thanks to the good finish (UFC Submission of the Night). Renan ‘Barao’ Pegado (29-1-0) entered as the No.1 bantamweight in the world while Michael McDonald (15-1-0) entered as the No.6. Renan Barao vs McDonald is valid for the interim UFC bantamweight title (Barao’s first defense); main event of UFC on Fuel TV 7. Watch the video!

Review: 2012-02-04, pleasant fight between Scott Jorgensen and Renan “Barao” Pegado but it is not enough to get our three stars. Scott Jorgensen (13-4-0) entered as the No.8 bantamweight in the world while Renan “Barao” Pegado (27-1-0) entered as the No.6.

Review: 2011-11-05, both fighters start strong but Renan “Barao” Pegado surprises Brad Pickett with a hard knee that rocks the english, so the Brazilian tries to finish him with ground and pound but then submits Pickett with one of the best action of the year (it is very close to our 4 stars). Brad Pickett, ranked as the No.8 bantamweight in the world, entered the fight with a record of 20-5-0 while Renan “Barao” Pegado had a record of 26-1-0. Pickett and Barao were awarded “Fight of the Night” honors (undercard of Leben vs Munoz – UFC 138). Watch the video!
