Let me ask you a question: Do you like the little guys? Now let me ask you another question: Do you like big knockouts?
If you like both of those things—and both of them together—then UFC 169 on Feb. 1 is your very special peanut butter cup card of the fledgling year.
From lightweight on down, UFC 169 is a remarkable collection of powerful smaller fighters, which is one of the promotion's smaller stylistic demographics. And if you prefer the bigger guys, never fear. Somewhere on the card, there's a big bolt thrower for just about every weight class.
At the top of the slate, you have Renan Barao and Urijah Faber mixing it up for the bantamweight title. Two heavy hitters there. And in the co-main event, one of the world's very best in Jose Aldo defends his featherweight strap against the streaking Ricardo Lamas, who got this title shot the old-fashioned way by earning it.
In examining UFC 169, you'll see that fireworks are poised and ready for launch up and down the card. Here's a full preview of the event, including information capsules, predictions and viewing coordinates for every contest.
