UFC 139's Brian Bowles ready to steal 'cool guy' Urijah Faber's thunder   [View Full Version]

Former WEC bantamweight champ Brian Bowles sounds like he's headed to a high-school P.E. class rather than a professional, no-quarter-given cage fight.

"Some people are going to be popular, and some people aren't," Bowles (10-1 MMA, 2-0 UFC) said today in advance of his meeting with Urijah Faber (25-5 MMA, 1-1 UFC) at Saturday's UFC 139 event, which takes place at HP Pavilion in San Jose, Calif. His fight is part of a main card that airs live on pay-per-view.

In four years under the big lights, Bowles has struggled to find an audience. Now, it sounds a little like he's giving up looking.

Really, he sounds like the A/V kid who's last picked for teams, plays Risk in the cafeteria with a handful of fellow dorks, and is lucky to snag a girl for prom, much less a girlfriend for four years. And, of course, on the other side of the cafeteria is Faber, surrounded by alpha males and cheerleaders alike, aloof with the constant attention and praise that come so naturally. The guy for whom everything seems so effortless.

"You don't know why he's cool, but he is," Bowles said. "I happen to not have it. Some people have it. Faber has it. It is what it is."

Bowles doesnt have the technique to land his hail marys, He doesnt have the wrestling to stay off his back, and he doesnt have the sub skills necearry to take home Urijahs limbs.

I think everyone's forgetting Faber is a distant number 2 at both 135 and 145 ahead of everyone.

Hook him up with mouse and you have my attention.
