    No. The bathtub took his soul way before TJ did.

    Renan is an asterick. How did he look like a world beater one day and the next he looks like he belongs in the minors.

    The first TJ loss was pre-USADA, so it obviously had nothing to do with PED's on his side. I believe the 1st loss to TJ killed his confidence.

    Because he got beat into a living death by TJ twice, who broke him mentally, and physically.

    Pillashaw ruined a great career and the health of Barao.

    Could be.
    Renan was unbeatable until TJ, so his confidence (at the time) could be the differential that brought him down.
    But IMHO his biggest issue was the weight cut.

    I think the first TJ fight took it all out of him...

    In his comeback fight he already looked bad...
    And then they gave him the TJ rematch...and he got destroyed again...
    And never looked good again...

    TJ and USADA finished him...


    He was super fun to watch though...

    Man, this picture frightens me.... the extreme cuts some fighters go through every fight....

    I really would love if the AC's banned weightcuts.

    I think the biggest problem are the huge gaps between weightclasses...
