Renan Barao is not only on of the longest mma win streaks of all time, but he’s also destroying opponents just like his training partner Jose Aldo. Clearly, as Dana White has said, the man does not get enough respect. The spinning back kick is timed perfectly as Wineland stops momentarily. Prior to the finish, Wineland shocked many, including myself as he landed more frequently and dodged a high count of Barao’s strikes. It only takes one to get through though and that’s exactly what happened.
Barao is now expected to take on the bantamweight champ Dominick Cruz in early 2014 as “The Domin8r” returns from two severe ACL surgeries. Question is, will he be the same as welterweight champ Georges St-Pierre has looked in his return? Time will tell.
