Interim UFC Bantamweight Champion Renan Barao will get his chance to become the undisputed bantamweight king when he faces the returning Dominick Cruz at UFC 169.

Barao won the title when Cruz went on injury hiatus and spoke about the unification match with Yahoo Sports:

“I’m truly happy this fight is finally going to happen,” he said.

“With all the media around it, it just really makes me happy to see that people recognize us.”

“I personally feel like that I’ve been a champion, not just now, but for some time,” Barao said.

“This is just a chance to unify the belts and show everybody what I can do, and keep these belts for a while.”
