Back at UFC 173 in May 2014, Renan Barao defended his Bantamweight Championship against T.J. Dillashaw.

Dillashaw was a massive underdog and managed to pull off an incredible upset, defeating Barao by a fifth round TKO. Now, after some weight cut and injury delays, the much anticipated rematch is set for the main-event of UFC on Fox 16, Saturday, July 25. To prepare you for the upcoming clash, here’s a retelling of the first bout with a bit of a fantasy spin:

You can see Dillashaw defend his Bantamweight Championship against Barao in the rematch of their epic first bout Saturday night on UFC on Fox 16, starting at 8 p.m. EST.
