Barao, however, claims he has not signed a deal to fight for SBC, and that he only made an appearance at their recent event.
“I didn’t sign any contract, I just went to the guest event,” Barao told Combate. “I took a picture because I was part of that event, but not as an event athlete, but just a participation. At the moment I’m not negotiating with any [promotion]. I’m just training, a lot of jiu-jitsu, and organizing some personal things in my life.”
