Nothing like a nice showcase fight to help Faber towards his next undeserved title shot.

Oh wait

Number 4 vs 129 - Makes sense to me

Guess this is a number 1 contender fight/one for the highlight reel.

Kind of silly to put these two together to fight, Faber is always in the hunt for a title shot, whether you like it or not. You would think they would give him a higher ranked opponent, so if he gets another title shot after a win, there will an extremely hard time selling this one.

Hope Lee pulls off the upset.

Faber should retire before he fights Vaughan Lee. I would be embarrassed if I were Faber and scheduled to fight someone my protege just whipped.

I trust FIGHT rankings and Lee's Ranked 28th, while Faber is ranked 5th. Eddie Wineland is higher ranked and I agree with it. What's Raphael A doing? Much better of a fight imo.

Raph is replacing Caraway, fighting Easton.

Well this is a strange match up. Not sure what they were thinking there, other than get Faber a win.

Everyone is being so hard on this match up I personally dont mind it. Urijah may be one of the best in the world but he has had two recent shots at the title and lost them both. Time to start from scratch.

This makes no sense I critique fighters harder than anyone I dont reward fighters for beating scrubs like most people on here....

When I read about this fight my first thought was Lee must be some up and comer undefeated to be fighting Faber....but I know the UFC loves a good company man and Faber can sell tix in his hometown...
