Renan Barao was born in Rio Grande do Norte, Brazil on February 27th, in 1987. Barao is a black belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and has fought as a bantamweight and featherweight. Barao was considered one of the best pound for pound fighters in the world when he was riding a 33 fight unbeaten streak (32-0 with 1 NC), with the last 7 of those wins coming in the UFC.

During his winning streak Barao won the UFC bantamweight title, but in 2014, after 9 years without a loss, Barao lost the title when T.J. Dillashaw scored a 5th round TKO to end the streak and the title reign. A little over a year later Barao was stopped by Dillashaw again, this time via 4th round knockout.
