TJ Dillashaw is set to make his second championship defense against Renan Barao at “UFC on FOX 16” on July 25, 2015 and Barao is already starting the trash talk.

In a recent interview with Tatame, Barao elaborated on the fact of what he thinks of Dillashaw as a champion. “I never said I don’t consider him the champion, all I said is I don’t respect him. Not as a champion, at least,” Barao said. “I’m going in there, we will fight and that will be it. He talks too much, so I don’t respect him.”

Barao is ready for a second-go at Dillashaw and claims that a shot that wobbled him early on in the fight caused him to fight “like a zombie”.

“Honestly, that strike really put me behind in the fight. If you look at his title defense, he wasn’t able to do what he did to me. I’m relaxed, I know I’m fast enough to trade shots with him, but unfortunately I got caught and I was like a zombie from then on”.
