Urijah Faber versus Jesus Christ next - I have no idea who Faber is going to fight next, I think they were trying to line up a fight between Faber and Pulver, but now that Pulver is indefinately injured, its really hard to tell if anything is going to happen. I can ask him if I see him when I stop by his gym hopefully later this week.

i thought it was Faber - Curran next. I have no idea who Condit will fight. Alessio in a rematch?
Larson probably gets a no namer.

I was hoping that after the upcoming Alessio fight, that they would put Larson against Alessio in a #1 contenders fight. I feel like Larson didn't think he that well and could do a lot better in the next fight they fight each other in. The only way to prove that is to take on one of the top ten guys in the WEC, and get back in the title picture. Taking on Cans isn't what Larson needs to be doing now.. Let undercard guys fight the cans, to build them up so that Condit has future opponents, but right now lets work towards a Condit/Larson 2.

I have heard that Curran is next in line for Faber, which should be a great fight.
Condit, I'm not sure who can contend. Larson needs to fight some guys with decent records. Go look at his fight listing, he fights a lot of guys wit horrible losing records. I'd like to see him against some top guys, Condit was his first huge test and he got submitted in unbelievable fashion.

Have Curran vs Swanson for #1 contender!

It's too soon to have Curran fighting.. Plus Swanson isn't ready in my mind. Swanson against Ledbetter would be interesting but it'd be a can fight for Curran.

I think Curran gets the next shot at Faber. I have no idea who Condit faces next, but i know he wants a fight with the UFC champion, but that will not be happening anytime soon (if it happens at all)

Not if the Curran who came into the Ledbetter fight comes in. He couldn't sub Ledbetter and Faber would be a more difficult fight. I say Faber by sub in the second..

True enough, he did look flat against Ledbetter. Curran usually fights better with better competition though. I like faber but curran can take this kid out of his game and catch him in a sub, and i hope he does as i've been calling it for awhile now.

That's confusing.. You would think a guy who has trouble with the likes of Ledbetter would have an even worse time with a Champion like Faber. In my opinion Faber beats Curran any day, drunk, and half brain dead. Of course they'd never let Faber fight if he was drunk and half brain dead.. Does that defeat my point?

you have obviously only watched mma on tv, correct?
How many of Currans fights have you seen?
i bet it is jusst the Ledbetter one, and beleive me faber knows he is one mistake or wild execution away from possibly being sub'd. I hope faber underestimates him, like yourself, by that fight, except thats the difference between faber and you...he is a professional that knows to study other fights, and knows what his opponet brings to the table.

Your right it was my only one, but because you said i've only seen the ledbetter fight, I went and watched the Krazy Horse fight and must say i'm still not impressed. Call it me being an overly enthusiastic Faber fan, or what not. I just don't see what makes Curran special. I'm about to watch the Yamamoto fight. I doubt it will change my mind either.. He looks like an average guy who is going to get a godlike beating.

Edit: If i'm wrong and Curran ends up defeating Faber, I will openly, make a topic in the Off-Topic section telling everyone how amazing your predicting skills are for seeing more into Curran than I think he deserves.

The only reason I even put him in the title of the thread was because he was one of the more interesting fighters to fight on the WEC 29 card.. Nothing more.

Edit 2: I hope that the Curran who got manhandled by Yamamoto comes in to face Faber. It'll be fun to see him lose. Something else i've noticed is that Curran loses when he faces A level guys (Matt Serra, Yamamoto), and when he's on A Level Cards (He lost both his only Pride fight, and his only UFC fight.). Most of his wins come off of guys who's loss count is higher than their win count. His biggest win came against Krazy Horse, who's current MMA record is 18-14-2.. Also looking at Faber and Curran's fights I noticed one thing that they both have in common. They both fought Ivan Menjivar. The thing is though, while Faber won his fight, Curran lost.

well i guess we will see in a few months, but i am biased towards curran. Even if he doesn't win, i want to see him put faber through 5 rounds and not some quick end. I still say Curran via sub rnd 2

Now see there is something that we do have in common. I would love to see it go all five rounds. I do think that Curran and Faber both could last all five of those rounds. I don't think Faber will get caught in one of Curran's sub attempts, and I don't believe that Curran will get pounded out by Faber. I watched as Yamamoto just kept pounding on Curran and must say that he took it and kept on going. I could really see it going the whole twenty five minutes with the better person coming out the winner on the scorecards.
