Renan Barao reveals why he missed UFC 177 and more.
“I was dehydrating in the bathtub, I fainted, I hit my head, I was taken to the hospital. I don’t remember anything that happened before or after, I just remember being waken up in the hospital. I was fine, my weight was around what I regularly come in for a fight. Everything was fine, everything was going great. The whole thing was I hit my head in the bathtub. I’ve had 35 fights cutting weight this method, it’s always been fine for me. The whole problem is I got up too fast and I blacked out, so that was the whole issue. [I cut] around 10 kilos. I’m very sad to not be fighting, this was a dream come true. I’m very disappointed and I want to come back and I want to face TJ. He’s been saying a lot of things and I want to come and tear his head off. I’m disappointed to let down the UFC and all the fans who came out and I want to make [Dillashaw] eat everything he’s been saying about me.”
