Faber eager to fight again...
MMAjunkie spoke with UFC fighter and former WEC champion Urijah Faber (26-6, MMA; 2-2, UFC) who would like to return to the cage by early 2013. UFC has a fight scheduled on February 2 during Super Bowl weekend with UFC 156, but Faber is currently scheduled to fight on that card.
Faber is coming off a loss to Renan Barao in an interim bantamweight title fight at UFC 149. He was originally scheduled to face Dominick Cruz in a rubber match, who had to drop out of the fight fight due to an injury. Faber is still rehabbing a broken rib injury but hopes to get the call to fight on UFC 156 once he gets medical clearance.
