The last time UFC bantamweight champion Renan Barao lost a fight, George W. Bush had just sworn in for his second term as president, Youtube had just been launched, and the pivotal Ultimate Fighter 1 Finale fight between Forrest Griffin and Stephan Bonnar had just taken place.
That’s how long it’s been since Barao departed a fight without celebrating. Thirty-three bouts later, he’s one of the world’s pound-for-pound best, and a prohibitive favorite over T.J. Dillashaw, a veritable newcomer to the scene that is actually one year older than Barao.
Meanwhile, Dan Henderson continues his last stand in the light-heavyweight division, taking on the undefeated Daniel Cormier that could send the winner into a title shot.
