The UFC is back in New Jersey this weekend for a stacked pay per view event. UFC 169 features two title fights in the Bantamweight and Featherweight divisions respectively. Long time Featherweight champion, Jose Aldo, will take on surging contender, Ricardo Lamas, in the co-main event of the evening. In the main event of the evening, newly minted undisputed champion, Renan Barao,  faces off against Urijah Faber in a rematch for the Bantamweight championship.

UFC 169 is not the only big event in New Jersey this weekend. The Super Bowl will be played the day after UFC 169 on Sunday. The AFC Champions, Denver Broncos, will take on the NFC Champions, Seattle Seahawks, in a battle of the best offense versus the best defense. At today’s UFC 169 media day, the top billed fighters all donned Seahawks and Broncos jerseys for the cameras.
