Urijah Faber versus Jesus Christ next - I have no idea who Faber is going to fight next, I think they were trying to line up a fight between Faber and Pulver, but now that Pulver is indefinately injured, its really hard to tell if anything is going to happen. I can ask him if I see him when I stop by his gym hopefully later this week.

i thought it was Faber - Curran next. I have no idea who Condit will fight. Alessio in a rematch?
Larson probably gets a no namer.

I was hoping that after the upcoming Alessio fight, that they would put Larson against Alessio in a #1 contenders fight. I feel like Larson didn't think he that well and could do a lot better in the next fight they fight each other in. The only way to prove that is to take on one of the top ten guys in the WEC, and get back in the title picture. Taking on Cans isn't what Larson needs to be doing now.. Let undercard guys fight the cans, to build them up so that Condit has future opponents, but right now lets work towards a Condit/Larson 2.

I have heard that Curran is next in line for Faber, which should be a great fight.
Condit, I'm not sure who can contend. Larson needs to fight some guys with decent records. Go look at his fight listing, he fights a lot of guys wit horrible losing records. I'd like to see him against some top guys, Condit was his first huge test and he got submitted in unbelievable fashion.

It's too soon to have Curran fighting.. Plus Swanson isn't ready in my mind. Swanson against Ledbetter would be interesting but it'd be a can fight for Curran.

I think Curran gets the next shot at Faber. I have no idea who Condit faces next, but i know he wants a fight with the UFC champion, but that will not be happening anytime soon (if it happens at all)

Not if the Curran who came into the Ledbetter fight comes in. He couldn't sub Ledbetter and Faber would be a more difficult fight. I say Faber by sub in the second..

True enough, he did look flat against Ledbetter. Curran usually fights better with better competition though. I like faber but curran can take this kid out of his game and catch him in a sub, and i hope he does as i've been calling it for awhile now.

That's confusing.. You would think a guy who has trouble with the likes of Ledbetter would have an even worse time with a Champion like Faber. In my opinion Faber beats Curran any day, drunk, and half brain dead. Of course they'd never let Faber fight if he was drunk and half brain dead.. Does that defeat my point?

you have obviously only watched mma on tv, correct?
How many of Currans fights have you seen?
i bet it is jusst the Ledbetter one, and beleive me faber knows he is one mistake or wild execution away from possibly being sub'd. I hope faber underestimates him, like yourself, by that fight, except thats the difference between faber and you...he is a professional that knows to study other fights, and knows what his opponet brings to the table.
