There's a UFC fight on Fuel this Saturday, Feb. 16, featuring Renan Barao and Michael McDonald for the interim bantamweight championship.

That may get lost in the shuffle, though, as all eyes have turned to Ronda Rousey's debut in the octagon the following Saturday, Feb. 23, at UFC 157.

The press coverage will be intense that week, including a profile of her on HBO's "Real Sports." It airs Tuesday, Feb. 19, at 10 p.m. ET/PT.

Below is an HBO teaser for it:
