Urijah Faber: I’m Kind Of Stuck In A Predicament

Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports

Former WEC champion Urijah Faber isn’t sure what his next career move will be.

Faber, coming off a pair of wins over Ivan Menjivar and Scott Jorgensen, remains atop the rankings as a contender to the UFC bantamweight championship.

However, that belt is currently held by both Dominick Cruz and Renan Barao – both fighters who hold championship wins over “The California Kid.”

“I’m in a weird spot in the sport being one of the biggest names in the lighter weight division, but not having a bunch of guys with big names to fight,” said Faber to The New York Post. “It’s kind of a weird predicament. I want to do the ones that count, the ones that people care about.”

Faber is 5-3 over his last eight fights, with all three defeats being title matches.

Is there a bantamweight, or even a featherweight, that you feel would make for an interesting opponent for Faber? I’d love to see him go one-on-one with Frankie Edgar somewhere down the line.
