Renan Barao suffered his second loss in three fights at the hands of TJ Dillashaw last night at “UFC on FOX 16”. While Barao will ultimately makes the decision, Dana White still thinks it would be a wise move for him to move up a weight class.

“Yeah, it’s obviously his decision but I think it would be a good idea to go up in weight,” White told the media after the conclusion of “UFC on FOX 16”. “You know, he’s been having problems with the weight. He didn’t have problems yesterday. He made the weight easy, but he looks really drawn out and dry when he cuts weight. So he should probably move up.”

Barao’s rematch with Dillashaw was originally scheduled to take place at “UFC 177”, but the Brazilian was forced to pull out of the bout the day of the weigh-ins; the weight cut was too much for him to handle.

Did Barao look like he was fatigued yesterday? Do you think it’s because of the weight cut? Share your thoughts in the comment section below!
