All have failed before him, but TJ believes he has something over ,the champ, Renan Barao, whom he faces in the UFC 173 main event in May.
He tells MMAFighting.com:
“Absolutely, I mean I’ve always been impressed with him before he was even the champ. He’s very well rounded, he’s explosive, he’s huge. He’s big for the weight class, you know, but I also think that’s his downfall. I don’t think he’s going to have the cardio.”
TJ also said,
“I’ve never been the underdog in any of my fights, so it takes all the pressure off. I have nothing to lose and everything to gain … It’s going to be a barnburner and I’m going to upset Barao and shock the world. Everything’s going to change from there.”
What do you think guys, is the fourth time the charm for TAM?
