Renan Barao is Fine with the Idea of Fighting Michael McDonald

| by

Renan Barao's (29-1-1 NC) coach André Pederneiras prefers that the interim bantamweight champion wait until Dominick Cruz (19-1) returns from injury, but whatever UFC matchmaker Sean Shelby decides is fine with him. Dana White recently suggested having Barão defend his title since Cruz is still out with an ACL injury.

"If I had a choice, I would rather Renan fight Dominick but I don't want to wait too long," said Pederneiras to MMA Junkie.
