Nova Uniao teammates Renan Barao and Jose Aldo will both look to defend their UFC championships at UFC 169 on Saturday.
With the fall of Anderson Silva, the UFC 169 headliners are the only remaining Brazilian champions competing under the UFC banner. Both meeting Americans this weekend, Barao and Aldo will need to perform well in order to prevent United States fighters from controlling all UFC titles.
Attempting to dethrone Barao will be Urijah Faber, who earned a rematch with the 135-pound champion by winning four in a row. In their first meeting, Barao out-struck Faber en route to a decision victory in a bout for the interim bantamweight strap.
Challenging Aldo, Ricardo Lamas has won in his first four UFC appearances. "The Bully" will try to prevent Aldo from picking up another title defense, which would tie the featherweight champ with Jon Jones for the most consecutive championship defenses during a current title reign.
It will be the second straight UFC pay-per-view to feature multiple title fights, so here is how MMA fans can watch UFC 169 from start to finish.
