Now that Renan Barao is in TJ Dillashaw’s rear view mirror, the bantamweight division is wide open for the champion. However, two of the top contenders for the championship (Dominick Cruz and Raphael Assuncao) are sidelined with injuries, so Dana White and company may be looking OUTSIDE of the division for “The Answer”.
