Renan Barao vs. Eddie Wineland At UFC 165 In Toronto on Sept 21st

The highly anticipated title clash between current champion, Renan Barao and Eddie Wineland was announced today as being the co-main event for the UFC 165 event card set for September 21st event in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

The fight was announced by UFC officials on Wednesday following an initial report from the sources.The fighters were originally set to face each other at UFC 161 on June 15th in Winipeg, Manitoba, Canada, but Barao pulled out due to injury.

Barao was last seen in action on the UFC on FUEL TV 7 card in London, England, defeating Michael McDonald via submission in the fourth round. Wineland would have been a strange choice to challenge for the title when he migrated over from the WEC ranks where he became the divisions first title holder.
