WEC Boss Says Faber Healed, Likely Meets Mizugaki In November   [View Full Version]

When his doctor told Urijah Faber he was medically cleared to fight, the former World Extreme Cagefighting champion instantly hopped to his feet, cheered, and began shadowboxing right there in the examination room. WEC General Manager Reed Harris, who accompanied Faber to the checkup, knew right then that a November WEC fight with Takeya Mizugaki was good to go. And though Faber technically would be able to fight as early as next month's WEC 51 event, Harris said the upcoming Colorado card was already full and prompted the tentative November booking. "He was good for September probably," Harris said. "But we had our card set already in Denver, so he's going to fight in November. And I think he's going to fight Takeya Mizugaki." Mizugaki could have taken another fight while Faber healed, but Harris said the Japanese fighter had his heart set on the matchup. "Mizugaki's been funny," Harris said. "He's like, 'I'll wait for the guy. I'll wait for him. I don't care.' He wants that fight." Harris said the organization hasn't chosen a location or venue for the November event, but as with other Faber fights, his hometown of Sacramento, Calif., appears a leading candidate.

...why would he not? He was never a big FW and his pedigree is wrestling which taught him how to cut weight pretty well. He wrestled at 133 in college so I don't see it being a problem at all in fact I think its the perfect weight class for him.

This is why the best camps in the world have dieticians, nutritionists, and personal trainers. Faber will probably look leaner in general, as he starts shedding muscle mass, as his next fight approaches.
