Jorgensen vs. Barão Wiki Update Wiki

The eighth bout of UFC 143 featured Scott Jorgensen taking on Renan Barao in a bantamweight matchup.


Barao quickly threw a head kick, blocked by Jorgensen. A low kick and then another landed by Barao, responded to by Jorgensen with one of his own. Barao came with a flying knee giving Jorgensen an opportunity to clinch and work for a takedown, but Barao stuffed it and separated. Barao connected with his right multiple times and then defended another attempt by Jorgensen to clinch and work a takedown. Jorgensen connected on a good right hand and Barao appeared to be lunging somewhat on his punches. Both fighters landed at the bell of a competitive first round.


Jorgensen closed the distance immediately to start the second but could not come close to wrestling Barao down. Barao began to have some effectiveness with his punches a minute into the round and was then effective with a spinning kick to the body. Jorgensen opted to pull guard and worked for a kimura. Jorgensen couldn't get much going off of his back and ultimately scrambled back to his feet with a minute and a half remaining in the round. Jorgensen landed a good right but it did not seem to be enough to change the overall sense that Barao was in control.


Jorgensen was the aggressor to start the third round and landed some good shots, yet Barao's reach and speed advantage made things difficult. Late in the round Barao landed some low kicks that appeared to hurt Jorgsensen, yet overall it was the least eventful round of the fight.


The judges scored the bout 30-27 unanimously in favor the winner, Renan Barao. Speaking to Joe Rogan through his translator, Barao commented, "I came here to fight three rounds, he was a very good opponent... trade a lot, the distance, the kicks was exactly the gameplan."
