    T.J. Dillashaw vs. Renan Barao likely set for UFC 177 in Sacramento
    http://www.mmafighting.com/2014/7/2/...-in-sacramento
    Recently crowned UFC bantamweight champion after a dominant victory over Renan Barao, Dillashaw will likely have to do it again on August 30, as MMAFighting.com's Ariel Helwani reported on Wednesday's edition of UFC Tonight on FOX Sports 1 that the UFC is close to giving Barao an immediate at UFC 177 in Sacramento, California.

    UFC 177 was tentatively planned for Las Vegas, Nevada, but appears to be moving to the new champion's home town.

    I figured they may have done the rematch in Brazil but going to Dillashaw's home town will be even more advantage

    Sorry to say to Barao, because he really is a gifted fighter, but for him to receive an automatic rematch is probably the worst automatic rematch given to a fighter after losing a title.

    Yeah it makes no sense Dillishaw controls the entire fight and finishes him that just doesn't warrant an automatic rematch. Especially with it only being his forth title defense and other contenders waiting in the wings

    Yawn. No interest in seeing this fight again. I feel like this will do even worse in the buys department than the last one which did really bad.

    I'll say this, TJ utterly dominated the entire fight and I'm not a fan of this rematch, however Barao did look like garbage and word going around the days leading up to the fight was that Barao had an ultra-shitty camp and had to come down from a high starting weight and had a miserable weight cut, so I'm curious if we didn't see the "best" TJ versus the "worst" Barao. So in that case, I'll be interested to see how he looks in the rematch and see if this time, we see a better Barao performance and how TJ handles it....

    Of coruse he did. This is Brazilian excuse #33547 in their book of excuses when losing a fight.

    I think any title fight under 155 needs to be matched up with another title above itself. It would really help bring more attention to those champions, something they lack.

    Every fighter has a reason or excuse for losing and it is rarely that their opponent is better than them, it is far from being an exclusively Brazilian trait.

    If Barao doesn't grant Dilleshaw an immediate rubber match after beating him, this will be even more offensive.
