Trainer Pederneiras: Renan Barao losing money, Jose Aldo still wants Pettis
Nova Uniao head trainer Andre Pederneiras said most of his fighters come from the favela, and they're literally fighting to put food on their tables. One star pupil, UFC interim bantamweight champion Renan Barao (31-1 MMA, 6-0 UFC), grew up poor, but no longer needs to live hand to mouth. Pederneiras, however, said the fighter isn't maximizing opportunity while he's very near the top of the 135-pound class. Just this past weekend at UFC 165, Barao became the first fighter in UFC history to twice defend an interim belt when he stopped Eddie Wineland. The performance won Barao a $50,000 bonus for "Knockout of the Night" as well as his show and win purses. Barao is making more money as he continues to dominate the competition in the UFC, but according to Pederneiras, he could be making far more from other sources...
