Falls as biggest favorite on card
BantamweightUFC
January 22, 2022
Barcelos lost to Victor Henry via unanimous decision (27-30, 27-30, 27-30) at UFC 270 on Saturday in Anaheim.
ANALYSIS
What a disaster. Entering as by far the biggest favorite on the card at -490, Barcelos ended up being swept on the judges scorecards. While each of the first two rounds were close, Barcelos appeared to fade as the frames went on, while Henry picked up the pace. There appeared to be little separating the two from a technical standpoint, but Henry's cardio was clearly better, and Barcelos crumbled under heavy pressure. It's not a stretch to call this a career-defining defeat for Raoni. He's 34 years of age, competes in arguably the deepest division in the sport and was coming off a unanimous decision defeat at the hands of Timur Valiev last June. This is a loss he simply could not afford. The odds are against the Brazilian making any sort of significant run at 135 pounds considering what we have seen from him over the past many months.

ANALYSIS
The fight was reportedly scheduled for Jan. 15 after being pushed back from January, but it's now on the docket for UFC 270. Barcelos won the first five fights of his UFC career before falling to Timur Valiev in June, while Victor Henry will be making his UFC debut.
