UFC interim bantamweight champion Renan Barao will look to defend his title for the second time when he takes on former WEC champion Eddie Wineland in the main event of UFC 161.

Barao (32-1, 1NC) has gone 31 straight fights without a loss (30 wins, 1 no contest). He took out Michael McDonald in his last outing, winning via fourth round arm triangle choke.

Wineland (20-8-1) has won back-to-back fights against tough opposition in Scott Jorgensen and Brad Pickett and looks to hold championship gold once again with a win over Barao.

The co-main event will consist of a light heavyweight bout between Antonio Rogerio Nogueria and Mauricio “Shogun” Rua. The fight is a rematch from their instant classic that took place in PRIDE back in 2005 in which Rua won via decision.
