Renan Barao is your new UFC interim bantamweight champion! He met Faber in the main event of UFC 149 and walked away with a unanimous decision (50-45, 49-46 x2).
Faber was a game opponent, but Barao executed an expert gameplan, constantly battering Faber with leg kicks. The kicks quickly took their tole and Faber was unable to effectively shoot for takedowns and his mobility was also effected.
The whole bout was similar to Faber's loss to Jose Aldo years ago in the WEC—not surprising as Barao and Aldo train together.
Faber goes back to the drawing board and Barao goes on to face UFC bantamweight champion Dominick Cruz.
