The 5 biggest takeaways from UFC Sao Paulo – including some dire questions for Renan Barao

What mattered most at UFC Fight Night 137? Here’s a thing or two …

1. Did the bubble just burst on ‘Ya Boi’?

On paper, Eryk Anders has lost two of his last three. That ain’t good when you’re supposed to be the hot new talent who, just in case there’s still a soul left on the planet who hasn’t already heard, happened to have played some big time college football in the past.

But context matters. Anders did take this fight against Thiago Santos on short notice, and less than a month after going nearly three full rounds in a win over Tim Williams. So if he couldn’t find his legs after another three against Santos, maybe it’s understandable.

Makes you wonder if it was all worth it, doesn’t it? Anders plugs a hole for the UFC, but takes another loss in the process. Even he’s got to wonder if he should have sat this one out.
