At UFC 149, Urijah Faber and Renan Barao will go to battle for an interim bantamweight title in the absence of champion Dominick Cruz. Cruz was injured during filming of The Ultimate Fighter 15 and was forced out of a rematch with Faber, his opposing coach on the reality series.
Heading into Saturday's main event, Barao is undefeated in 28 straight fights and will be looking to fulfill the championship potential many see in him. Meanwhile, this fight could be the final chance for Faber, a formerly dominant WEC champion, to earn a UFC title.
The fight card will also feature a heavyweight clash between Cheick Kongo and former Strikeforce competitor Shawn Jordan. Kongo will be looking to get himself back on a winning track after suffering a knockout loss against Mark Hunt.
Additionally, Brian Ebersole will step into the Octagon for what could be his final welterweight bout against James Head, as the veteran appears to be readying himself for a move to 155 pounds.
Before Saturday's event, which will take place at the Scotiabank Saddledome in Calgary, Canada, the fighters will hit the scales on Friday at 6 p.m. EDT. Video of the weigh-ins will be streamed live on the above video player. After the weigh-ins, stay tuned to Bleacher Report for all the latest on UFC 149 and the rest of your MMA needs.
