It's OK to admit you scratched your head when you heard Urijah Faber's next fight. In some ways, Faber did, too. But that doesn't mean "The California Kid" is taking his next challenge – Yuri Alcantara – lightly.

he should learn how to defend leg kicks if he intend to win this match..i see Yuri doing the same thing Barao and Aldo did..using leg kicks and better striking to win..Faber doesnt want to go to the ground with Yuri either..

I hope Yuri gets the upset now. Thats a dick move by Faber; playing the ol "My opponent isn't as popular as me" card.

He's going to have his hands full with the Brazilian. I can't wait to see this

Faber has to be the most insecure fighter in the UFC. Small man syndrome anyone?
