UFC 149 press conference full video for 'Faber vs Barao' from July 19 in Calgary

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) kicked off its traditional pre-fight press conference earlier today (July 19, 2012) at Flames Central in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, featuring UFC President Dana White and UFC Canada's Director of Operations Tom Wright.

Joining them were main event headliners Urijah Faber vs. Renan Barao, who will face off this Saturday night (July 21) at UFC 149 from the Scotiabank Saddledome for the right to call themselves UFC Interim Bantamweight Champion.

Also in attendance were middleweight maniacs Hector Lombard vs. Tim Boetsch. One of them wants a fight against Anderson Silva while one of them wants a fight against Mark Munoz.

Seriously.

In addition, heavyweight hopefuls Cheick Kongo vs. Shawn Jordan are set to sling leather for a spot in the 265-pound pecking order. Can the Parisian finally shed the label of gatekeeper?
