Renan Barao: 'I want to come back and tear T.J.'s head off'

Quote:
Renan Barao shot his mouth off on Saturday at probably the worst time.

Barao, who normally says next-to-nothing during interviews, had plenty of harsh words for UFC bantamweight champion T.J. Dillashaw for some inexplicable reason.

Dillashaw was professional and made weight and was ready to face Barao on Saturday in a rematch for the bantamweight title at the Sleep Train Arena in Sacramento, Calif., in the main event of UFC 177.

Barao passed out while in a tub in his hotel room while trying to cut weight and was pulled from the title shot and replaced by Joe Soto.

Barao passed out while in a tub in his hotel room while trying to cut weight and was pulled from the title shot and replaced by Joe Soto.

This would have been the perfect time for Barao to keep his mouth shut, but in comments released by the UFC, he instead went on full bore attack against the man who defeated him for the belt at UFC 173 in May in Las Vegas.

"I trained harder than ever for this fight," Barao said. "I wanted to make T.J. swallow his words from everything he's been saying. I used the same methods for getting ready for this fight as I have for my last 35 fights. I didn't think there was any problem. I just got up too quickly, fainted and hit my head. I want to come back and tear T.J.'s head off."

UFC president Dana White, unhappy with Barao for missing weight, said Barao won't get an immediate title shot upon his return.

It might also behoove Barao to think before he speaks. He was probably responding to Dillashaw's comment at the weigh-in, when Dillashaw said he felt Barao was afraid.

But given how Barao let Dillashaw down and cost him money -- Undoubtedly, the show will wind up with fewer pay-per-view sales than it would have had had Dillashaw-Barao II been the main event -- he should have just taken the comments from Dillashaw in stride and kept his mouth shut.

Now, he looks like an arrogant, out-of-touch, pampered athlete who wants to blame others for his issues.

Whatever Barao is at fault for whoever wrote this should do some mma and cut some weight before calling him names.

Indeed. And now we are going to place permanent labels on fighters just because one said something out of a hot head and other responded something else out of a hot head? Both were pissed. One for losing money, the other for missing weight, the fight and being called a coward.

Still kind of hypocritical on talking about ripping his head off when Dillashaw in fact showed up on fight night and he didn't. I'm glad Barao isn't getting a title shot now.

Missing weight should count as a loss anyways.

And they should get rid of weight cutting in MMA also. What are weight classes for when fighters fight 20lbs heavier on fight night¿

Kind of this. Making weight is part of the process and if he wasn't ill or sth, he failed.

Shut up Barao. You got beat up badly, took a rematch that you didn't deserve anyway too soon, and pulled out on 24 hours notice. You deserve everything TJ decides to dish out.

It shouldn't even matter whether the fighter is ill or not. It's the same as going into a fight not 100% - if you lose, you lose.

Well he had his opportunity to tear T.J's head off, TWICE, and failed both times. Once he got his ass uncompetitively kicked, the other he gave up before the fight even started.

Just like Rogan said, what he did was both embarrassing for him and the UFC as a whole. He only has himself to blame.

Zero humility after this whole thing. Starting to really dislike Barao and I was always a big fan of his (I thought he was the P4P #1) but this and last night him telling Rogan that there was nothing wrong with his weight cut at all, Dude you passed the f*** out! How could he possibly try to say there wasn't anything wrong with his cut is he that out of touch with reality?
