MMAFighting.com photographer, Esther Lin, was on the scene at Champion's Creed Gym in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, earlier today (July 18, 2012) to shoot several of the notable fighters who will compete on the UFC 149: "Faber vs. Barao" main card for the event's open media workouts.
Naturally, the two men who will collide in the main event of the evening, Urijah Faber and Renan Barao, were on the scene to promote their interim Bantamweight title bout, which will likely earn the winner a date with division champion Dominick Cruz -- who is recovering from knee surgery -- later this year.
The two fighters who will co-headline the mixed martial arts (MMA) event -- Hector Lombard and Tim Boetsch -- were also in attendance to work up one of the last few real sweats prior to their Middleweight mash up on fight night (July 21, 2012) at Scotiabank Saddledome this weekend.
