The hits keep coming. Interim Bantamweight Champion Renan Barao and Eddie Wineland finally have a new date to fight, and it will go down at UFC 165. The two were supposed to fight for Barao’s title at UFC 161, but an injury sidelined Barao and postponed the fight. As rumors begin to pick up about Champion Dominick Cruz returning soon, the winner will likely be the one to unify the belts.
UFC 165: Jones Vs Gustafsson takes place September 21 at the Air Canada Centre in Toronto, Canada. In the main event, Defending Light Heavyweight Champion Jon Jones will put his title on the line against Alexander Gustafsson.
Sportsnet was the first to announce the fight:
