yes, he is a huge star. Biggest star that the WEC has. He would be in the UFC if they had a 145 lbs. class. I have heard that the UFC has thought about adding 145 just to get Faber.

Actually was at wrestling camp three or four years in a row with him in High School. He was a maniac then... Whole different level than others his age. I was older, and he had the guys beat in our group too... at 14.

he is very good, if you go to dailymotion.com and type in his name or warrior nation you can find an episode of warrior nation where he prepares to fight enoch wilson. great television in my opinion.

very smart kid- finished college first, opened his own gym

and i think he only has one loss to tyson griffin

oh yeah, after his last fight he challenged KID YAMAMOTO to a fight.

i truly dont think it will ever happen, but it would be fun to watch

im not sure that pulver is really making the move to wec to fight at FW, especially if he beats bj. ill wait to hear it from jens or another source like metzler to believe it, its a big step down from main eventing in ufc to go to wec(although it is getting a lot of exposure lately). as far as faber goes, he is a bona fide stud and a fight with yamamoto would be awesome, but probably would have to be in ufc for kid to agree to it. maybe a 1 time FW match in ufc just to see the fan reaction and showcase the little guys for future fights in that weight class.

I own a gym. He walked in and started talking to me (we didn't really introduce ourselves) After our talk told him if he was ever back in town feel free to come by and train. Then we introduced ourselves. I'm like "dude I'm a huge fan I've been following your career. You fight Cole Escovido next" So we start talking strategy and basically has everything covered "well then I'll just shut up then".. .lol

Not that brilliant of a story but ah well.

15 title defenses in a row, a great gym with a program that raises anybody's cardio, natural athletic tendencies, and the ability to go 6 rounds at the same pace makes this guy a monster at featherweight.

In his last fight though, his height (or lack thereof) was taken advantage of, Farrar was actually winning the stand up before he initiated (stupid move) the clinch. But, I don't see anyone beating Faber in the FW class for a while

Has Faber ever considered moving up to 155?

I think hes much better off at 145, he's good at cutting the weight, and theres nobody his size down that low.

I think he fought Tyson at 155. I have seen Urijah at 3 different KOTC's Live and he is exciting and fun to watch, and there is not alot of people that can challenge him at 145. That said, I think Kid Yamamoto would crush him.

Faber vs. Genki Sudo would be so sweet. Please come back Genki!

I'd love to see Urijah fight Manvel. That fight would be a war and a really really hard one to predict.
