The already stacked UFC 156 looks to pick up another big fight. Former Featherweight champ and Bantamweight contender Urijah Faber will face ivan Menjivar.

A little over a week ago reports started surfacing that perennial contender Urijah Faber would return to action at UFC 156 against Vaughan Lee. The decision was widely criticized for being an extreme mismatch. With Lee struggling with a UFC record of 1-2 and his only win coming over a faded Kid Yamamoto, it's hard to argue that logic.

Much better match up than the one with Lee. I'm not sure who I like in this one yet. Ivan is vastly underrated and I think he has a real shot to win this fight.

Faber needed someone he could destroy like Lee. Get ready for more rounds of Faber point sparring win or lose.

Much credit to the UFC for matching Faber up with, ya know, a fighter of or near his caliber. The Lee match up was a matchmaking tragedy.

Way better fight. I don't think Menjivar will win, but WAR MENJIVAR nonetheless.

When did Vaugn Lee change his name to Menjivar? I didn't think he converted in the can... I didn't even think Menjivar was a Muslim name... Or that Menjivar was fighting for number one contender.

If Menjivar had a belt he could whoop Uriah silly. That's why Uriah never called out Chael... he has too many belts.

Much better fight, I think Faber still takes it, but Ivan has a way better chance than Che.
