Last night at UFC Fight Night 58, Renan Barao returned to action for the first time since losing his bantamweight strap to TJ Dillashaw.
After being off to a slow start, Barao found his rhythm and eventually submitted Gagnon in the third round (See that HERE).
Below is a compilation of fighter reactions to the bout.

Baroa looks tough to take down and I think that weirdly excites me =) #UFCBarueri

Did Gagnon just basically give up??

U never want a fighter to feel like he's anything but invincible on fight night. Nice sub but perhaps #barao felt more "human-like" tonight.
