The 13-bout lineup, including a championship headliner between interim bantamweight titleholder Renan Barao (30-1 MMA, 5-0 UFC) and challenger Eddie Wineland (20-8-1 MMA, 2-2 UFC), is set for June's UFC 161 event.

The pay-per-view event takes place June 15 at MTS Centre in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. FX and Facebook carry the prelims.

That's a solid card right there! Surprised Davis/Sexton made the PPV card over Shields/Woodley but I'm not complaining seeing as both these chicks are super skilled and exciting!

So does anyone actually give him a shot. Seems to me his skill set is extremely similar to Barao's last opponent.

It's mma so I guess every time you step into the cage there's always a chance to lose. But in all seriousness I don't see Wineland winning or even see the judges scorecards. The only Bantamweight to challenge Barao would be Cruz.

Nice Main Card and one of the better FX Prelims I can remember in a while, at least on paper.
