Story | Feb 1, 2014 | 9:50 PMUFC 169 takes place tonight from the Prudential Center in Newark, NJ. It is an effort by the UFC and Fox to tie the UFC into the week’s Super Bowl related events. The event is headlined by a pair of title fights. Bantamweight champion Renan Barao defends his title against the popular Urijah Faber. Faber has struggled recently in title fights but won four straight fights in impressive fashion to earn this opportunity. Faber and Barao fought once before, with Barao taking the decision. In addition, featherweight champion Jose Aldo defends against challenger Ricardo Lamas. Lamas is a wrestler who has wins over the dangerous Erik Koch and Cub Swanson. However, wrestlers have struggled in the past against Aldo, widely considered one of the sport's premier pound for pound competitors. There is also an interesting heavyweight showdown between former UFC champion Frank Mir and former Strikeforce, Dream and K1 champion Alistair Overeem. Mir is one of the all time best heavyweight submission artists while Overeem is one of the division's most feared strikers. The stakes are sky high as Mir has lost three straight and Overeem two straight. The loser is likely out of the UFC.
