Drive. That is what both Urijah Faber and Renan Barao have coming into Saturday’s UFC 149 as both men have a strong desire for the bantamweight title. Faber has had a spectacular career, but his most wanted achievement still is to be a UFC champion and sees Barao as his most important fight.
If you don’t know who Renan Barao, then you are missing out on the longest running MMA streak in UFC. Training with featherweight champ Jose Aldo, Barao is very well rounded in his skills. As Faber admits, his wrestling is much higher than most Brazilians and is dangerous standing and on the ground.
