Urijah Faber (26-5 MMA, 2-1 UFC) has his opponent for UFC 148's co-headliner and interim-bantamweight-title fight.

During tonight's new episode of "The Ultimate Fighter: Live," UFC president Dana White confirmed surging 135-pound contender Renan Barao (28-1 MMA, 3-0 UFC) has gotten the slot.

The fight was booked after reigning champion Dominick Cruz (19-1 MMA, 2-0 UFC) was forced out of a rubber match with Faber following a recent ACL injury.

Cruz and Faber currently are coaches on "TUF: Live," and their season-ending fight was slated for UFC 148, which takes place July 7 at MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. Faber vs. Barao, which will be contested over five rounds, is the pay-per-view co-headliner behind the night's main event of middleweight champion Anderson Silva vs. Chael Sonnen.

Barao initially was slated to fight Ivan Menjivar (24-8 MMA, 3-0 UFC) at UFC 148. Menjivar's next move is at this point unknown.

Renan in my opinion is the only option that makes sense

Faber better be careful or he wont be getting another shot at Dominick

VIP pass to enlightenment - - -

See Jozay vs Faber for end result.

Edit - - Barao's hands were bigger than Faber's chin, I didn't think that was humanly possible

Repeat of Faber/Aldo.

This makes me happy. I won't have to see Faber get another title shot after all.

I prayed long and hard when Cruz vs Faber III was announced. There is an mma god after all.

My belief has been renewed.

Barao I expect should dominate this fight and hopefully open up the path for a new champ in the Bantamweight division

C'mon Sparky, you know Faber gets unlimited title shots!

I could almost guarantee, if Faber loses to Barao, and Barao loses to Cruz, all Faber needs is a one fight win streak and the trilogy fight is back on.
