Urijah Faber Expected To Return At UFC 156 Vs. Vaughan Lee

In what most will view as a “easy” return from an injury, former WEC champion Urijah Faber is rumored to be headed for UFC 156 and Vaughan Lee.

Tatame, a Brazilian MMA news outlet, first reported the match for the February 2 card. It features UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo facing Frankie Edgar in the main event.

Faber (26-6) has gone 2-2 inside the Octagon, including a loss to Renan Barao in a bout for the interim UFC bantamweight title this past summer.

Lee (12-8-1) is 1-2 since joining the ranks of the UFC, including a loss to Faber teammate T.J. Dillashaw.
