UFC 149 is set to take place this Saturday from the Scotiabank Saddledome in Calgary, Alberta, and headlining the event, pending any last-minute injuries, will be a interim bantamweight title fight between Urijah Faber and Renan Barao.

Faber is no stranger to fighting for MMA titles, having held championships in the WEC as well as King of the Cage promotions. In addition, he has previously fought for the UFC bantamweight title, dropping a unanimous decision to Dominck Cruz in that contest.

For his part, Barao has never fought for a title, but don't let that fact lead you to believe that he is undeserving of the honor. Barao is currently riding a 29-fight unbeaten streak, with the only loss of his career coming in his first professional bout back in April 2005.

In order to get you primed for the upcoming title scrap, here are a few interesting facts about the fighters.
