Two champions, two title bouts—there'll be plenty at stake during the main showdowns on Saturday night at UFC 169.

Since losing to UFC bantamweight champ Renan Barao at UFC 149, perennial fan favorite Urijah Faber put together an impressive four-fight win streak—and he did it decisively enough to earn himself another shot against the Brazilian terror ruling over the 135-pound division. 

Will all the pieces fall into place for him on Saturday night, or does Barao really have his number for the long haul?

In the evening's co-main event, UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo will look to secure his sixth-straight UFC victory against the dangerous Ricardo Lamas. 

Will Aldo's sheer ferocity be too much for the American to handle at UFC 169?

Oh, and let's not forget the fact that Alistair Overeem vs. Frank Mir will act as a precursor to both of those title fights. Though neither the winner nor the loser will walk away from the fight with a title, there's still much to lose for either man.

Both know how to finish fights, so there's no reason to doubt that we'll be left with one fighter loudly snapping a losing streak and the other left worse for the wear.

Here's a look at the entire fight card scheduled to go down in Newark, NJ.

Will both Brazilian champs continue their respective title reigns, or will we see the dawn of a new era? Does Mir have what it takes to whether the Overeem storm, or will he tap the K-1 champ before he even knows what hit him?
