Ya know i didnt think Brown would win the first fight....butnow I think he might KO Faber....he looked like a savage against Garcia, I thought Garcia was out cold when he hit him with that shot....Faber could win but I think MTB is a bad match-up for Faber, Brown having a wrestling background as well.

My original hunch was Brown in the 1st fight because of the power advantage but thought Faber would prevail on the ground. I see Brown dominating again regardless of Faber throwing reckless strikes or not. Faber was a great champion so his experience with being champ and the pain of losing it is a definate plus, should be a good one.

damn this is a WEC fight that I am UFC level excitec to see. gonna be a slobber knocker of a fight. I got brown tko in first. Brown is just to strong and powerful for faber. I still hope the fight goes longer to see the great mma skills of both fighters.

I'm not too quick to jump on the Mike Brown bandwagon just yet.

I think Faber wins and does so convincingly.

I have no clue on this fight. My first thought would be brown wins it tko.

But then again faber isnt going to come in as wild as he did last time. Maybe he will be quicker also. But should be a good war.

ive always thought faber was overated, tho i did pick faber to win the first time around due to the fact that i hadnt watched brown fight in a couple years and was stupidly basing my opionon on him from then (i even missed the curran fight)....now that ive gone back and watched a few, im caught up.....i think that faber is a talented fighter but falters when faced with the higher level of competition....im picking brown tko, but this time 2nd or 3rd rd....i dont think faber will be as wild as last time, but he will eventually get put down again

I think Faber is going to fight a much smarter fight this time around....I think he will wear Brown down and sub him in one of the later rounds.......

Everyone here seems to be a Mike Brown bandwagon jumper. I like Brown as a competitor and he's a really good fighter, and a beast at 145. But, you all have to remember I personally think Urijah was winning that fight before he got caught. He will NOT get caught again. Urijah beats Brown up to a UD win.

I don't think Faber will come in so wreckless in his approach this time now that he knows what Brown is capable of.

I don't remember that fight punch for punch but I seem to remember thinking man Faber has nothing for Brown. Didn't Brown put Faber down once before he knocked him out?

Faber lost his balance and wash shoved resulting in him going down...he wasn't "put" down by any means.

The fight itself was rather uneventful...neither fighter really got the better of the other during the exchanges. It was pretty even in the clinch even though that was only about 20 seconds worth of the fight.

That whole fight boils down to one thing...Faber got cocky and got caught. Brown, by no means, dominated him.

Urijah will learn from his mistakes...

Yeah just watched the fight I was wrong I think Brown was winning the round but by no means did either guy dominate that fight. Thank you emfleek for the video Brown did push him down. I think this is going to be a great fight and to say either is going to smash the other is a injustice to the other fighter.
