I always thought that if there is more than 1 title fight the heavier class gets top billing? (example: Lesnar/Mir over GSP/Alves) or am I just pulling this out of my ass?

Why is Barao/Faber top billed?

I've been wondering the same thing. I don't remember if this card had changed due to injuries or not. That's the only thing I could think of.

i think that's how it is usually. the only reason i see for this is that it was originally barao/cruz (champ vs champ).just my assumption.

Helwani asks Faber about that in the pre-fight scrum - neither he nor Faber knows why exactly, but they try to figure it out...

Pretty sure Dana said it was because originally Barao v Cruz was a unification bout. They could have changed it when Cruz got crocked but decided not to. Doesn't matter either way. Phone Post 3.0

Aldo v Lamas isn't a head turner, so I gather that's the reason. If so, smart move by the UFC. Phone Post 3.0
