UFC Poster 169 Barao Faber Aldo Lamas

Official UFC 169 Event Poster: Take Two. With now-former bantamweight champion Dominick Cruz bowing out of his title unification bout with interim champ Renan Barao because of injury, and Urijah Faber stepping in as a last-minute substitute to challenge Barao, it’s only fitting the February 1 card gets a new billboard.

Cut and paste is such a convenient feature…

Despite the exit of the champ vs. champ scrap, the 135-pound shootout retains the show’s top slot. Featherweight king Jose Aldo puts his strap up for grabs against Ricardo Lamas in the co-featured attraction.

In addition, heavyweights Alistair Overeem and Frank Mir will likely be fighting for their UFC lives.
