In any case, his session against Aljamain Sterling has not been crossed out. Rather, it will happen at a 140-pound get weight, CSAC Executive Director Andy Foster affirmed to Sherdog.com on Wednesday. FloCombat.com was the first to provide details regarding the circumstance. UFC 214 happens at the Honda Center in Anaheim, Calif., on July 29 and is featured by a light heavyweight title rematch between Daniel Cormier and Jon Jones.

Barao's issues go back to his proposed bantamweight title rematch with T.J. Dillashaw at UFC 177, which occurred at the Sleep Train Arena in Sacramento, Calif., on Aug. 30, 2014. A terrible weight slice constrained Barao to haul out of the battle ultimately, and Joe Soto, who was on the preparatory card, ventured in without prior warning face Dillashaw. Soto would lose through fifth-round knockout.

"Do you recollect UFC 177, the one here in Sacramento? The last time we needed to manage Mr. Barao at 135, it didn't turn out so great," Foster told FloCombat. "He didn't make it to the battle. Our specialists and our bonus staff, we are surely not against the battle [vs. Sterling]. We're content with the battle. Just not at 135. Presently, if Mr. Barao makes 140 no issue and everything's great, later on in the event that he needs to battle at 135, we can return to that."

Sterling, who is falling off a choice prevail upon Augusto Mendes at UFC on Fox 24, tended to the circumstance on his Instagram page.

"It would appear that the commission is making the weight cut less demanding for Barao. Bantamweight, featherweight, or catchweight, it doesn't make a difference to me!" Sterling composed. "Whichever way the commission isn't going to prevent me from putting this person on his back and dropping some hellbows all over! How about we see who needs this s- - t more!!! YOU HAD YOUR TIME!! É a minha vez!"

Barao would contend twice more at bantamweight after the UFC 177 fiasco, submitting Mitch Gagnon in the third round at UFC Fight Night 58 preceding tumbling to Dillashaw through fourth-round TKO in a rematch at UFC on Fox 16. The Brazilian at that point quickly moved to featherweight, where he lost a choice to Jeremy Stephens at UFC Fight Night 88 preceding outpointing Phillipe Nover at UFC Fight Night 95.
