The UFC 149 fight card has been a work in progress from day one, but with the event coming up Saturday night in Calgary, the card is finally locked and loaded.

The main event has switched from a featherweight title bout to one featuring Urijah Faber facing Renan Barão for the interim UFC bantamweight championship. The co-main event pits rising middleweight talent Tim Boetsch against former Bellator champion Hector Lombard, trying to narrow down the list of challengers to UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva.

With so many changes to the fight card and the all-new main event, it might be a good idea to tune-in to Tuesday night’s premier of Countdown to UFC 149 at 9 p.m. ET /  6 p.m. PT on Fuel TV.
