The entertaining UFC bantamweight,Renan Barao , spoke to Tatame.com about the possibility that he could face Urijah Faber at UFC 148 for the interim bantamweight title, with current champ Dominick Cruz being sidelined with an injury for a lengthy time:
“It would be great. Actually, I fight any guy UFC tells me to. I’m prepared and I can fight anyone. I started my preparation and I’ll fight anyone they tell me to. I’ll be prepared to go there and do a good jog and a good fight. My focus in on Menjivar. It’s all speculations, bets. I’m slated to fight Menjivar.
It’s a fans thing. They want it to happen. People on Facebook and Twitter want me to be in this fight and Faber himself pointed me out. The champion got injured and Faber is fighting. I’d be really glad to confront him. That’s all. They haven’t say anything to me”.
