Renan Barao vs. TJ Dillashaw full fight video preview online for UFC 173

Renan Barao has won 22 fights in a row, including 7 inside the Octagon. He'll try to stretch that to 8, defending his bantamweight championship in the process, when he takes on TJ Dillashaw tonight (May 24, 2014) at UFC 173 in Las Vegas, Nevada.


"Training is invaluable. Whatever happens in that fight, what have a response, both defensively and offensively. I'm feeling really well. I'm 100-percent fine. I'll be better prepared than in my previous fight. ... My goal is to train hard and hold this title for a long time. I hope for 10 years as Aldo and I said so. I've gained this and I don't want to lose it."


"I've always known a title shot for me was on the horizon. As long as I keep performing the way I was performing than I was going to get a shot. ... You know, if it's a submission, if it's the knockout, no matter what, I'm going for it. Barao's a dangerous athlete. He comes in to finish fights but I don't want to overthink what he does. I gotta be ready for a five round war. I feel like I'm the better athlete, I've got better cardio, and I've gotta show that I gotta push the pace and get after it." will provide LIVE round-by-round, blow-by-blow coverage of the entire UFC 173 fight card on fight night, starting with the Fight Pass "Prelims" matches online, which are scheduled to begin at 6:30 p.m. ET, right on through the FOX Sports 1-televised under card bouts at 8 p.m. ET and then main card PPV, which is slated to begin at 10 p.m. ET.
