Interim bantamweight champ Renan Barao wants to be the best by fighting Dominick Cruz

Fresh from his highlight reel knock out of Eddie Wineland in UFC 165, Renan Barao has told MMAfighting.com that Dana White informed him that he won’t be defending the interim bantamweight in his return to the octagon.

The UFC has decided to strip Dominick Cruz of the regular title if “The Dominator” will not be cleared by the start of 2014. According to Barao, that decision makes a lot of sense since Cruz has been out for 2 years.

Flyweight division is rumored to make its way to the UFC, but it's not likely to happen until early next year.

UFC has been long flirted with the idea of having a flyweight division, which is not likely to happen before the year closed. According to UFC President, Dana White, plans for the 125-pound division are still in place. However, it is more likely to make its way to the promotion by early 2012.

The flyweights were rumored to make a home at Zuffa since WEC days, but it is still awaiting in the largest MMA promotion yet. However, Dana White expects several fighters to drop down in weight once the flyweight is up and running. This could include Joseph Benavidez, Demetrious Johnson and Charlie Valencia. Ian McCall, who is currently ranked as the best flyweight MMA fighter, could make a return to Zuffa as well.

More fighters could follow Ian McCall to the UFC, but it looks like the plans for the 125-pound division will possibly happen next year.
