Renan Barao is on a 31-fight unbeaten streak. Think about that. I can’t even walk 31 steps without stumbling, and this dude lines up 31 dudes in front of him and he’s defeated them all. We can appreciate that. Even though Michael McDonald was a formidable opponent for the awesomely wild-eyed Brazilian, in the end, Barao proved to be too much for McDonald and sunk in a slick arm-triangle in what seemed like an instant to chalk up his first title defense to the delight of the London crowd. This sets up the inevitable title-unification matchup whenever Dominick Cruz is back from implanting zombie ACLs into his knee, which he assured the viewers at home during the broadcast was going well.
While Cruz rehabs, Barao is entering possible GOAT territory. You know what the craziest thing about that is?
Who can stop this man? I say make Frankie Edgar fight him next if Cruz can’t go.
