SACRAMENTO - The UFC will return to Sleep Train Arena in Sacramento when newly crowned bantamweight champion T.J. Dillashaw defends his title against former champion Renan Barao, in a rematch of their May 24 fight.
Dillashaw (10-2), a member of Sacramento's Team Alpha Male, shockingly dominated Barao before scoring a fifth round TKO for the victory in Las Vegas. The loss snapped a 32-fight winning streak for Barao.
Barao (32-2-1 no-contest) will attempt to win back his bantamweight championship belt, but will have to do so in Dillashaw's backyard. Dillashaw is a native of Angel's Camp but makes his home in the Capital City.
