Renan Barao vs Mitch Gagnon Set For UFC Fight Night 58
Former UFC bantamweight champion Renan Barao will finally make his return to the Octagon when he meets Mitch Gagnon at UFC Fight Night 58, which takes place on December 20th, 2014 in Barueri, Sao Paulo, Brazil.
Renan Barao, who’s currently ranked at no. 1 in the division, had the opportunity to avenge his title loss to TJ Dillashaw, back at UFC 177. However, the day of the weigh-ins, Barao had issues cutting weight, was admitted to the hospital, and was removed from the card.
Prior to losing his title to TJ Dillashaw, Barao was undefeated in all seven of his UC fights, and had not lost a fight since 2005.
Mitch Gagnon, who recently got into the official UFC rankings at the no. 15 spot, is on a roll as of late. Gagnon has won four of his past five fights in the UFC’s Octagon and has a chance to make a huge impression in his fight with Barao.
