Barao Had Ideal Camp and Ready to Go

UFC 177: Renan Barao feels that this time he had the ideal camp to face T.J. Dillashaw
By: Fernando Arbex, SB Nation
"Renan Barao thinks that his preparation for his second bout against T.J. Dillashaw has been better then his camp before their first fight, when both fighters had a little less than eight weeks to train. The former UFC Bantamweight champion told Bloody Elbow that he was able to have a complete camp and is confident he'll have a better performance in their rematch at UFC 177 on August 30. T.J. Dillashaw, the new title holder TKO'd Barao in the fifth round of UFC 173, on May 24, and was easily ahead in the score cards before the finish.
 
"'For this fight I had the ideal time, I think that my camp couldn't be better. I'm more focused, I had more time to be ready. I've changed some details in my preparation but my goal will be the same, to go forward. I'll look for the finish as I always do.'"
