If anybody deserves this shot, it's 29-1-1 Renan Barao. His only loss was his first fight and the NC was from an illegal soccer kick. This guy hasn't lost a fight since April 2005. For him not to get the shot is insane.
Just wanted to bring this back from the dead now that Barao is the guy fighting Faber. After he beats Faber, you'll see why he should have been the coach rather than Faber, whom they were using for ratings rather than the guy who really deserved the shot at Cruz' title.
