UFC bantamweight champion Renan Barao puts his 32-fight winning streak on the line against Team Alpha Male’s T.J. Dillashaw in the main event. Undefeated Daniel Cormier takes on Dan Henderson in the co-main event with the hopes of earning a title shot. ”Ruthless” Robbie Lawler faces Jake Ellenberger in a welterweight match-up with big implications in the 170-pound division.
After weighing in, Dillashaw was confident in why he would be the man to dethrone Barão, who hasn’t lost in his last 33 bouts. ”I’m hungry, I got what it takes, I believe in myself, and I ain’t scared.”
His words didn’t faze Barão, however, who said, “He’s like my past opponents; it makes no difference. I’m ready 100-percent to defend my belt.”
While none of the fighters had trouble making weight, Henderson came in well below the 205-pound limit for his bout with Cormier, weighing in at 199 pounds. Cormier stepped on the scale at 205 pounds even.
