Former UFC bantamweight champion Renan Barao makes his anticipated return to the Octagon on December 20th to take on Mitch Gagnon.
Renan Barao who was scheduled to face TJ Dillashaw (the man who took his title at UFC 173) in August of this year at UFC 177, but the much reported and heavily debated weight cut issues and subsequent hospital trip removed him from that fight. We will see how all that effects Barao on December 20th.
His opponent Mitch Gagnon is on an impressive run of 4 straight Octagon wins. Most recent of which was a submission win over the game Roman Salazar at the Halifax, Canada event headlined by Rory MacDonald and Tarec Saffiedine a little more than a week ago.
