A rematch between WEC feaatherweight champion Mike Brown and former champion Urijah Faber seems to be in the works.
According to UFC President Dana White, who’s company owns the WEC, the fight is likely to occur in Sacramento on PPV. If so, it would mark the companies very first PPV event.
“I’m very confident its going to happen,” White told KHTK radio out of Sacramento. “I’m very, very confident it’s going to be on pay-per-view… (And) I’m very, very, very confident it will happen in Sacramento.”
White also indicated that the fight will likely take place sometime in June and will run fans $39.95.
Mike Brown, who looked amazing against top contender Leonard Garcia last Saturday, seems as excited as anyone at the prospects of facing Faber again.
“I’m happy that I established myself as the champ.” Brown said in at the post fight press conference. “I would fight anybody, there are a lot of guys deserving of a shot but I think the fans want to see me and Urijah the most. I wouldn’t want to shortcut Jose Aldo or Wagnney Fabiano or anybody like that, but I think the fans would like to see Urijah and I fight again.
Expect the fight to be signed not long after Urijah Faber, who has one fight left on his current contract, re-ups with the WEC; which could come as soon as this weekend.
