Despite losing almost everything against Mike Brown except his positive spirit, Urijah Faber can't wait to get back in the cage. A day after the WEC 41 loss he talked about the fight, Jose Aldo, and his future plans when he does return-which would seem to include a 3rd fight against Brown.

If only his hand wasn't broken...
I think he honestly would have won back the title, especially with that choke in the third.

I seriously love this guys attitude towards fighting.

faber and brown are just awesome for the sport. these two personify what a champion is. positive, honest, and humble when needed, but full of endless confidence.

anyone new to mma should have to watch these guys first. as a "how to" cheers to both of them.

Faber is a great representative of California MMA-you could say that, at least as far as the 2-0-9 goes, he's the anti-Nick Diaz. Nick will flip off anyone and everyone without a second thought but Faber always seems cool, calm, and approachable. Brown has come off pretty well himself in interviews and, at least in my eyes, is now a deserving champion. He no longer can be called a fluke, Faber injury or not. He's now beaten Faber twice and has 2 successful defenses under his belt.

Faber always has a good attitude and is a class-act. 145 is quickly turning into one of the most stacked in MMA (maybe THE most stacked if you think about the two GPs going on in Japan plus the talent in the WEC). Faber should have a series of good fights coming up.

It will be interesting to see if Brown still has the belt by the time Faber's hand heals. Faber hinted at the match-up with Aldo in this interview and brought up Aldo's speed vs. Brown's strength. Brown was having trouble with Faber's speed the whole fight. Aldo is real fast.
