UFC Quick Quote: TJ Dillashaw would crap his pants in Brazil

"I think he would crap his pants. Fighting in the United States is easy. I want to see him fighting me in Brazil. It's completely different. Dillashaw is talking too much crap. If we fight again, you can be sure it will be completely different. When we fight again, he will see the real champion. I don't like to make jokes, talk trash. I like to show my work inside the cage, show the best Renan Barao possible. He can enjoy that belt for now, because it's coming back to Brazil soon."

Former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) bantamweight titleholder Renan Pegado doesn't sound overly impressed with the man who stripped him of the belt, reigning 135-pound kingpin TJ Dillashaw. In fact, "Barao" tells MMA Fighting that a rematch would play out much differently, especially if "The Viper" was willing to man up and take their redux in Brazil. That could take awhile, since ex-champion Dominick Cruz has first dibs on Dillashaw, and Pegado has his own task ahead of him in Mitch Gagnon next month in Brazil (more on that here). Anyone think these two will eventually give it another go? If so, who wins?
