Former World Extreme Cagefighting featherweight titleholder Urijah Faber expects to return to action in January, but an opponent has yet to be named for "The California Kid."

Faber confirmed during the WEC 43 broadcast on Oct. 10 that Jan. appears to be when he'll fight again. "That would be perfect timing for me," Faber told MMAWeekly.com "I'm hoping it's January."

No opponent has been named, but the 30-year old fighter anticipates a tough match up.

"I imagine I'll get a tough opponent. That's the way mixed martial arts is, the best fights the best. I'm looking forward to challenging myself and putting the smack down on somebody," said Faber.

I have a feeling he is going to fight Assuncao.

I think there was a reason he was guest commentating during that fight...to see his future opponent.

Assuncao vs. Faber would be a great war, IMO

I'd hate to see either of them lose, but with the WEC's STACKED FW division...you gotta set up these fights, can't really pad all these guys.
