Urijah Faber

“It’s going to be a close fight, but the advantage point for me is first off the speed neutralizing him, and second having an advantage in the grappling, and understanding what his weapons are. His knees and kicks are going to be one thing, and his hands, but being aware of it is going to make it easier for me…Aldo’s got the champion’s mentality. I really think he believes no one’s going to take his belt…I believe that is my belt, and that I am going to take it, and that’s what great fights are. It’s just basically two guys that are top dogs, two guys who are alpha males, and dedicated to their art, and looking forward to a fight…I would say mid-May would probably be ideal for me. Mid-May, maybe late April, that’s kind of close, but I feel great. I don’t really take time off. I’m ready to fight, I’m ready to get this belt, to continue to build my name, and blow up MMA and the light weight classes and the WEC.”

—Urijah Faber telling MMA Weekly he hopes to reclaim his WEC featherweight title from Jose Aldo in May

All the recent chatter points to Aldo vs. Faber headlining the WEC’s first pay-per-view card. Of course, there’s a lot of ongoing chatter about a lot of other stuff in the WEC like a reality show and flyweight division that hasn’t happened yet, so we’ll see.
