Faber vs. Barao Full Fight Replay - UFC 149 PPV

Urijah Faber vs. Renan Barao Latest Updates

WBC middleweight title
Thomas & Mack Center, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA

UFC Featherweight Champion Jose Aldo was forced to withdraw from his title defense against Erik Koch, which was slated for July 21 at UFC 149. To replace the main event title fight is another title fight. Sacramento’s Urijah Faber will take on Brazilian Renan Barao for the interim UFC bantamweight title.

Faber was supposed to face UFC Bantamweight Champion Dominick Cruz in what was slated as the co-main event at UFC 148, but with Cruz sustaining an ACL during training and was replaced by Barao. Now with injuries ravaging the 149 card, Faber-Barao was the smart choice to replace Aldo-Koch.

The 25-year-old Barao said: “I’m very surprised to be the No.1 contender to now fight Urijah Faber but I’m so very excited to fight for the title and replace Dominick Cruz. I’m very confident. I have been training a long time for this chance and I will be ready to go out there and put on a good show.”
