UFC President Dana White has some advice for former champion Renan Barao: “Get a real nutritionist.”

Just hours after his weight cut went awry and cost him a slot in tonight’s UFC 177 championship main event, Barao (32-2 MMA, 7-1 UFC) was the subject of conversation.

I think its a little early to be saying Barao has a weight/cutting problem. He's gone 30-something fights and just now had his first bad situation (that I know of).

I don't know whether Barao has one or not, but I believe if I were a UFC champion I would have a nutrionist. Not only to help me make weight, but just in general to help me be my best.
I didn't really like GSP fights towards the latter end of his career, but that guy seemed to do almost everything right to prepare for fights. Fighters, champs especially, should follow GSP's lead.

One of the only half way logical things white has said about this.

Barao does need to take better steps next time.

After this incident Barao and Aldo are going to make the switcheroo we have all been thinking they would make a lot sooner.
I think in 2015 Barao will be at 145 and Aldo at 155.

They are? Cool!
LW: Aldo vs Nurmagomedov, please.
FW: Barao vs Swanson, please.

aldo should move up for his body to not get wrecked but he seems to have had an easier time making weight lately.

Better yet, Barao could get a dietitian!
