UFC 149 will take place from the Scotiabank Saddledome in Calgary with the main card bouts airing live on PPV at 10PM ET.

The main event of Saturday’s card is for the UFC Interim Bantamweight Championship as Urijah Faber (26-5) faces Renan Barao (28-1). This is a fight for an interim title as the actual champion, Dominick Cruz, is going through a knee injury that will have him out for nearly a year. According to oddsmakers, Barao is the favorite to win this five-round title fight, as he has a money line of -200, while Faber has odds of +160 to win. Faber is seeking his first UFC title. He was scheduled to have a rubber match with Cruz prior to Cruz getting injured. Faber has won three of his last four, but has lost his last four championship contests. Barao is 3-0 in the UFC and riding a 28-fight win streak with nine KO’s and 13 submissions in the run. Barao has beat a number of top contenders, but facing his toughest test to date against Faber. Both men are very skilled all around, but Faber may have a slight striking edge, while Barao may be the better submission fighter.

In the co-main event of UFC 149, middleweights Tim Boetsch (15-4) and Hector Lombard (31-2-1) face off. According to oddsmakers, Lombard is the favorite in this fight. He has been given a money line of -345, while Boetsch has odds of +275 for this contest. Lombard is making his UFC debut after being the Bellator middleweight champion for the past few years. Lombard currently has a 20-fight win streak and he has finished his last four opponents. Boetsch is 3-0 since he made the move down from light heavyweight to middleweight. He earned a big KO win over Yushin Okami at UFC 144 where he made a miraculous third-round comeback. Boetsch is strong and has big power in his hands while Lombard is also known for his KO power, but has a good grappling background as well. This fight should be a good scrap and likely won’t go the distance.
