UFC 149 fight card participants gathered at Flames Central in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, to discuss this Saturday's event. The event is headlined by the Interim UFC Bantamweight title fight between Urijah Faber and Renan Barao, while Hector Lombard and Tim Boetsch battle it out in the co-main event. Also on the card, Octagon veteran Cheick Kongo takes on the up-and-coming heavyweight star Shawn Jordan.
UFC 149: Faber vs. Barao is the first ever Ultimate Fighting Championship fight card in Alberta, Canada. The event on Saturday night will take place at the 19,289-capable Scotiabank Saddledome. According to UFC officials, the demand for tickets is still high, despite the injury plague that caused no less than 10 changes to UFC 149 line-up.
