“For now, we haven’t talked about whether he stays at this weight, or goes up. We’ll have that talk next week.”

“I feel Barao fought at a level way below his potential. He wasn’t able to perform in the way we saw during training. One positive would be that, even though Barao was very tired, he never gave up, not for a second. I think that was the biggest positive.”

“We believe that if the bout happens in December, (Aldo will) be ready to fight. We haven’t had a formal conversation about it. But if it happens at the AT&T Stadium, we would find that wonderful. There’s a chance we could beat the UFC attendance record. To fight at that stadium, we would love it.”

Nova Uniao Andre Pederneiras, coach of Jose Aldo and Renan Barao, recently talked to MMAJunkie about Barao’s performance against TJ Dillashaw and whether he will be moving weight classes. He also discussed the return of Jose Aldo.
