Anne-Marie Sorvin-US PRESSWIRE

Everything you need to know about UFC 169 right here!

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is all set to blow the roof off the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey, with its latest pay-per-view (PPV) offering, UFC 169: "Barao vs. Faber 2," featuring Renan Barao defending his bantamweight championship -- not the interim belt, mind you -- in a rematch against Urijah Faber, who he defeated back at UFC 149 to win the original interim title.

The other featured bout on the card is a featherweight championship showdown pitting long reigning division kingpin Jose Aldo putting his strap on the line against the always dangerous but unheralded Ricardo Lamas. Elsewhere, Frank Mir will battle Alistair Overeem in heavyweight action.

With anticipation running high and so many news stories hitting you at once, we can understand if you missed a few and need an easy guide to get to them all.

Well stand back, Maniacs, because we're using technology.
