Renan Barao to Defend Interim UFC Bantamweight Title

November 18, 2012 | Posted by Jeremy Thomas

Dana White spoke last night at the post-UFC 154 press conference about Renan Barao’s interim bantamweight title and more. Check out the highlights:

On Barao defending the interim title: “We were talking about Barao defending his title now. So whether he wants to wait or not, we’re going to go back to him soon probably here and have him defend it.”

On if Michael McDonald will get the shot: “I think so.”

On why Barao is defending the title when Carlos Condit didn’t: “Carlos Condit, I think we quickly forget how many hoops that guy jumped through and all the things that he did, you know, stepping aside and all the stuff that went on in the crazy Nick Diaz situation. He deserved to do whatever he wanted to do. If he wanted to sit out, he could. There’s different circumstances with different guys.”
