UFC 149 has gone final, and we can now tip our hats to the newly crowned interim UFC bantamweight champion, Renan Barao.
The question of if and when Barao will defend the interim title will surely be a hot-button subject, but that's something we can worry about at another time—right now we are concerned about what's going to happen when the UFC presents their next fight card.
That card, the fourth event on FOX, will take place on August 4 from the Staples Center in Los Angeles, CA and will feature a main-event bout between former UFC light heavyweight champion Mauricio "Shogun" Rua and Brandon Vera. Rua will not be the only former UFC champion on the card, as Lyoto Machida will meet Ryan Bader in the evening's co-main event.
Before we get into the questions heading into UFC on FOX 4, let's take a look at the full results from UFC 149:
