Urijah Faber-Ivan Menjivar Expected To Be Added To UFC 157

It appears Vaughan Lee will not be the next opponent for Urijah Faber.

According to, verbal agreements are in place for Faber and Ivan Menjivar to meet at UFC 157.

Previous reports linked Faber and Lee to UFC 156, but it looks like “The California Kid” will meet Menjivar for a second time later in February.

The two bantamweights collided back in 2006, with Faber scoring a disqualification victory over Menjivar after being hit with an illegal upkick.

Faber (26-6) will be returning to action off a loss to Renan Barao for the interim UFC bantamweight title. Menjivar (25-9) rebounded from a defeat to Mike Easton recently, submitting Azamat Gashimov.
