Prelude to a cage fight.

Urijah Faber will take on Renan Pegado at the upcoming UFC 149 pay-per-view (PPV) event this Saturday night (July 21, 2012) at the Scotiabank Saddledome in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. In the process, he'll try to get his hands on the division's Interim Bantamweight Championship.

"Barao" will try to stop him.

To kick things off in "Cow Town," Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) fired off its traditional pre-fight press conference to help promote this weekend's extravaganza, and both "The California Kid" and his Brazilian foe were on hand to do their part.

See them face off after the jump.
