Despite a stellar career record, former WEC featherweight champion Urijah Faber (22-3 MMA, 7-2 WEC) undoubtedly feels like he's got a score to settle with Mike Brown.

Two losses in less than a year will do that to you.

But if "The California Kid" is able to claim a victory over Raphael Assuncao (14-1 MMA, 2-0 WEC) at WEC 46 in January, Faber isn't hoping for another crack at Brown. Faber wants his title back.

I personally dont believe Faber should get a shot at Aldo at this point.

Aldo has beaten... I mean destroyed, eveyone thats been put in his way. He has shown awesome stand-up and a great ground game, I would be very hard for me to see Faber winning.
It would, however, be an exciting fight to watch.

Me neither. I think he needs to beat Brown, or Brown should rematch Aldo.

I will take a healthy Urijah over anyone in the division.

Healthy Urijah has already lost. He doesn't need people making excuses for him. He shouldn't over look his next opponent, this is a tough fight for him.

He also doesn't deserve the shot yet. But no one deserves it more so, whatever..... let Aldo destroy him.

There is no way Faber wins this fight. Bet me.

Really?! Hve you seen the any WEC fights in the past 12 months? 145 isn't nearly what it was two years ago. Urijah was fortunate enought to be the kingpin for a lengthy period because the level of competition wasn't nearly as stacked as it is now. He's still obviously gifted enough to hang with just about anyone, but there are absoluely no gimme's at the top of that division. He's going to have a harder time against Assuncao then most realize too.

Nothing against him as a fighter, he's fun as hell to watch. But I don't think it's out of line at all to say that he's fortunate he was able to make his mark on the division by being the belt holder when Zuffa purchased the WEC.

The top three guys are all very well rounded.(Well we haven't seen much of Aldo on the ground)

When I look back at Urijah's first loss to Brown, I think that he made a huge mistake throwing that spinning elbow and Brown, being the elite fighter he is capitalized on it. The second fight was a war, and that was with Urijah having a severely broken hand throughout a lot of the fight.

I think for as much as people were riding his bandwagon, they were extremely quick to jump off of it after a short bad stretch.(Much like you see people doing with Mike Brown now)

Jose Aldo is what's hot right now and people are thinking he's invincible, much like Urijah two years ago, and Mike Brown up until two weeks ago. Both guys were exposed, and Jose Aldo will probably suffer the same fate, who knows. I'm just saying I still have a lot of faith in Urijah Faber as well as Mike Brown, because both are quite capable and have a great shot at getting their belts back.
