Video: Countdown To UFC 149 - Faber Vs. Barao And Kongo Vs. Jordan

A little while ago, the Countdown to UFC 149 section featuring the co-main event bout between Hector Lombard and Tim Boetsch was posted. Now, we're got the other two sections as well. The first focuses on the main event fight between Urijah Faber and Renan Barao, that will be contested for the UFC interim bantamweight title. Faber was originally scheduled to face off with champion Dominick Cruz as the two were TUF Live coaches, but Cruz blew out his ACL and Barao was brought in.

The final segment focuses on another major bout on the card, Cheick Kongo vs. Shawn Jordan. Jordan, a Strikeforce fighter who moved over to the UFC, was a late replacement for Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira. He won his first bout in the UFC, and now steps up to the main card to fight the veteran French fighter.

Check the Faber/Barao segment below, and Kongo/Jordan below the jump.
