Former WEC featherweight champ Urijah Faber will look to reclaim the title he held for so long on June 7 at WEC 41 against the man who, with one huge right hand took it from him late last year, Mike Brown.
The “California Kid” recently sat down with MMAjunkie.com to share his opinion on how the last fight went and what changes, if any, he is making while preparing for the rematch.
“I threw a flying elbow without looking at the guy, and he kind of ducked into an overhand right and caught me and dazed me a little bit,” Faber said. “That was the biggest mistake, and other than that, I thought I was doing pretty well. I was landing more punches and doing my game plan.”
The confidence and swagger Urijah displayed while tearing through the WEC’s featherweight division and becoming a fan favorite appears to be intact, but even he knows that he can’t afford to make another mistake against a game opponent in Mike Brown.
“I’ll make a couple little changes,” Faber said of his WEC 41 game plan. “I just need to be cautious.”
Come June 7 in Sacramento, California, with the title up for grabs, Urijah Faber will have a chance to prove that his loss to the current champ was the result of a simple lucky punch. Mike Brown will undoubtedly be out to prove no luck was involved.
