Jose Aldo Wants Renan Barao To Move Up To Featherweight

Renan Barao TJ Dillashaw

“We have to see what’s best for Barao. He suffers a lot to make weight. He’s kind of strong for the division. I hope me 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.

“He has a good head and will bounce back, at my weight or at bantamweight.”

While at this weekends UFC 190, UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo talked to MMAFighting about his friend and training partner Renan Barao. He said that he thinks Barao should move up to the featherweight division following his disappointing loss to TJ Dillashaw.
