...at 31, Faber is in the most danger of losing his status as the WEC’s marquee star since the company’s relationship with Versus started. He’s 22-3 but has lost two of his past three fights, both to former champion Mike Brown.

A win would lead to what could be promoted as the biggest event in company history – perhaps even the WEC’s first pay-per-view main event, as has been discussed internally. A loss would for the first time remove him from title contention. Assuncao is a submission expert, having submitted eight opponents, and is particularly dangerous with the armbar.

I don't see Urijah losing this one. Brown was tailor made to beat Faber with his game power game and beating Urijah at his own strengths. I don't think a submission guy is what's going to beat him.
