I guess the alternative for Barao would be to put on some more muscle and move up to LW if Aldo doesn't do it in the near future.

Seriously, Roop's midsection doesn't even look as thin at bantamweight as Barao's does when they're weighing in, and that's saying something. There's a reason that boxers and kickboxers don't even cut as much weight [on average] as mixed martial artists (and wrestlers) do: cuz' they're much more aware of the danger of not having enough fat around your mid-section and cuz' they have to worry about body-shots a lot more (there aren't many guys that regularly attack the body in MMA, much less guys that do it well).
stop playstation and go to gym.

It's one he'll of a risk jumping straight to lw, some of those dudes like Thompson, Bendo etc, are huge. If I was Renan I'd defend my title a few times and see if Aldo moves up, I wouldn't want to vacate a title I only just got to take such a huge risk.

His weight cut must be very difficult tho, Aldo needs to help a brother out .
