You bring up a good point with suspensions. Barao did get a 45 day suspension.
If he is actually adhering to that suspension then he has just over 2 months of training time.
For the first fight people were complaining that Barao didn't have enough time to prepare for the fight, get down in weight.
When the fight was announced it was 6 weeks after the 1st fight and he was on suspension. I wonder how much weight he had put on by July 4th. You also have to figure he probably didn't think he'd have a fight scheduled this soon.
"Renan Barao: Suspended until 07/09, no contact until 06/24"
