Aldo Pushing for Barao Move To Featherweight

Renan Barao


“We have to see what’s best for Barao. He suffers a lot to make weight. He’s kind of (big) for the division. I hope he moves up, yes. I will root for him no matter what, no matter where he is, at 145 of 135. I hope he can fight well at featherweight, that he moves up well.”

“This time Barao trained hard, we were confident he would do a completely different fight. He tried to fight the way he was training in the gym, but he couldn’t.”

“He’s a close friend, I like him a lot. I know he has a good head and will bounce back at my weight or at bantamweight, and that he’s able to do an excellent job.”

UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo talked to the media recently and revealed that he does think his friend and training partner, Renan Barao, should jump up in weight class following two devastating losses to now champion TJ Dillashaw.
