The UFC has confirmed Nova Uniao teammates Renan Barao and Jose Aldo will both put their divisional titles on the line at UFC 169, giving fans a double-dose of championship action on Super Bowl Weekend. Barao will attempt to remove the interim label on his strap when he takes on linear champ Dominick Cruz who will return to the ring after more than two years on the shelf due to injury, while Aldo is on tap to finally lock horns with vicious finisher Ricardo Lamas. Both bouts should be fantastic in terms of technique. The quartet of competitors are all well-rounded and none have any real weaknesses to speak of save for Cruz’s ring rust.
Welcome back to the 10-Point Must! Every week I’ll give my thoughts on ten topics from the past seven days with hopes the readership will contribute their takes as well in the Comments section. This time around, subjects range from a few fighters looking to change divisions to fallout from recent events to a couple of clashes booked for the coming weeks/months.
