Renan Barao successfully defended the UFC interim bantamweight title today, submitting Michael McDonald in the 4th round with an arm-triangle choke. It's likely that Barao will have to defend his belt at least once while Dominick Cruz continues to recover from his knee injury. Immediately following the Barao/McDonald fight, Eddie Wineland made it clear on Twitter that he wants the next title shot.

Eddie Wineland ? @EddieWineland

I WANT TO FIGHT BARAO!!! Please?? =)

Why not? I can't think of anyone else who might be ready.

It makes sense to me. I could see Barao waiting for Cruz but if he wants to fight 3 times this year I'm all for this fight.

This fight is the only one out there for Barao at this point. Cruz is still injured so I say make it happen

Wouldn't mind seeing
Aldo vs Pettis
And Barao vs wineland in Brazil which is being rumored to be at in early Aug

Either that or wineland vs Perez for next shot
