UFC president Dana White has been singing Renan Barão’s praises for months, calling him one of the best pound-for-pound fighters on the planet. So what happened to him at UFC 173 on Saturday night?

It’s simple, says White. When TJ Dillashaw caught him and knocked him down in the first round, Barão was unable to fully recover, and Dillashaw took the fight to him for the duration of their bout.
