I'm not a Faber fan to be totally honest. I think he's overrated, not in skill, but in the poster boy department. I get tired of people constantly going on and on about him as if he's Fedor or Anderson Silva status, which he's not.
I noticed during the commentary they mentioned there was talk of the winner getting a shot at the title. BULLSHIT. Faber shouldn't recieve ANOTHER gift title shot. Yeah, he won tonight, but nothing Faber did made me think he deserves a shot coming off one win. That would make three in a row.
Losses belt to Mike Brown - Which was his first loss since 2005 which was against a much large Tyson Griffin.
Wins against JENS PULVER - Who just came off a solid win over Cub Swanson.
--->Recieves a title shot against Brown after ONE win
Loses in the rematch against Brown - Which Faber fought a 5 round war with two broken hands.
--->Wins against Raphael Assuncao - Who was looking very solid and hadn't loss since 2006.
--->Recieves ANOTHER title shot at Jose Aldo
Loses to Aldo - Stayed in their with one of the best in the world for 5 rounds even when he could barely stand he still gave it his all. Thats something the past 7 fighters that have faced Aldo have been unable to do.
WIns against Takeya Mizugaki - A very solid win and was able to stop him which no one else in the WEC has been able to do. Torres (x-champ) and Jorgensen (who is about to fight the champ) where both unable to stop Mizugaki.
(BETTER NOT RECIEVE ANOTHER TITLE SHOT ) Why not? Who else do you have in mind. He also has a win over the current champ.
Now don't get me wrong I don't think Faber is in the top 10 P4P fighter in the world but in my book he is in the top 20 P4P fighter of the world. The guy ruled 145 pounds for years and you have to respect that.
