Barao vs Wineland to Headline UFC 161

Brett Okamoto @bokamotoESPN

Just confirmed with Dana White, Renan Barao vs. Eddie Wineland booked to headline UFC 161 in June.

TTT for Eddie.

Yeah just heard Luke Thomas say this, guess Cruz wont be ready.

Good fight, good main event, thats a solid card now.

Especially if they add Rory vs Maia/Tarec/Stun Gun.

Sweet, Eddie is getting his shot :) Phone Post

Man bantam weight needs some new contenders

Big Eddie fan, glad he's getting a shot. First WEC champ Phone Post

This a tough fight for Barao. Wineland may be the best boxer at 135 and has good takedown defense. Phone Post

Excellent fight to top off an already stacked main card Phone Post

Yeah this card is looking legit as shit

Wineland smash.

Did not expect this... congratulations Eddie and good luck.

Doc T - Sweet, Eddie is getting his shot :) Phone Post


Good luck Eddie Phone Post

Bad matchup for Barao. I think he's going to have a hard time cutting off Winelands angles and getting a takedown. Phone Post

Nice. Not sure this is a headliner even for the strap but I like the fight. War Eddie! Phone Post

wow.... Barao is the man.

This fight makes 161 one hell of a card.

I still have Barao. He's yet to give me a reason to doubt him.

Barao is a beast but please Eddie, do what you have to do, man!

Great style matchup, Wineland should give Barao some interesting problems and has a lot of power in his punches. This plus the two LHW fights announced = WIN. Phone Post

Happy for Eddie but i don't see this going well for him

Sofa King Cool - What does the rest of the card look like? Phone Post

Hendo vs rashad and shogun vs lil nog Phone Post
