    It's a great card but sucks for Wineland that he's still on in a non-title fight. I suppose it's a bit different as it's an interim title, but I don't like injuries completely eliminating a title fight instead of postponing it.

    That said, I think DW should bring in Pettis to fight for the interim-interim 135 belt.

    i honestly dont think barao being out will hurt this card too much, most will be ordering for the hendo/evans and nog/shogun fights anyways

    Hopefully he wasn't on a motorcycle. Dana hates motorcycles.

    Urijah Faber steps in, beats Wineland, becomes Interim-Interim BW champion, realizing this is the closest he will come to being a champ now that the 2 guys who he cant beat, are out with injuries.

    Interim champ Renan Barao 'probably' out of UFC 161 main event with injury

    Interim champ Renan Barao 'probably' out of UFC 161 main event with injury | News

    UFC interim bantamweight champion Renan Barao (30-1 MMA, 5-0 UFC) is likely out of next month's UFC 161 pay-per-view headliner with Eddie Wineland (20-8-1 MMA, 2-2 UFC) due to a foot injury.

    A UFC official today told (UFC blog for UFC news, UFC rumors, fighter interviews and event previews/recaps) Barao "probably" will be unavailable for the event. Tatame initially reported Barao as a definite no-go.

    It's not clear what the UFC will do as its Plan B.

    UFC 161 takes place June 15 at MTS Centre in Winnipeg and is the promotion's first visit to the Manitoba province in Canada. Already booked for the event's main card are Antonio Rogerio Nogueira vs. Mauricio Rua and Rashad Evans vs. Dan Henderson.

    Barao looked to defend his interim title for a second time as champion Dominick Cruz recovers from a knee injury. The fighter, who's won 30 straight fights (and five straight in the UFC), defended it for the first in February with a submission win over Michael McDonald.

    Wineland, a former WEC champion, recently fought his way back into title contention with back-to-back wins over veterans Scott Jorgensen and Brad Pickett.
