After an impressive unanimous-decision victory over Jens Pulver in perhaps the biggest WEC event to date, featherweight champion Urijah Faber (21-1) will return to action and defend his belt Sept. 10 against Mike Brown (15-4).

A source close to Brown told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) that bout agreements were distributed and finalized in the past week.

The WEC 36 bout, which is expected to take place at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, Fla., was first reported by Sherdog.com.
Faber, who made his fifth successful title defense since winning the WEC belt in March 2006, also picked up his 13th consecutive win with the victory over former UFC champ Pulver. His only career loss came to Tyson Griffin in 2005.

I see Urijah getting a sub win on this one. 2nd round or possibly 3rd.

Faber win this one. I don't see him losing his belt anytime soon. They need to upgrade that division with more fighters that can challenge Faber.

i agree with everyone so far that faber will win, but brown is a solid competitor. there really aren't many guys left out there in the featherweight division for him to fight. we all know the kid/kid fight is never going to happen, so these match ups are all we could hope for.

I agree with you i think faber will win prolly in the 1st or 2nd round but mike brown is very solid, and could give urijah a great fight.
