According to a report by the Brazilian news source Tatame, Urijah Faber will return to action in February at UFC 156: Aldo vs. Edgar. Faber will meet Vaughan Lee.
The card goes down February 2 from Las Vegas, and is expected to feature UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo against Frankie Edgar. Alistair Overeem-Antonio Silva and Rashad Evans-Antonio Rogerio Nogueira are also scheduled to collide.
Faber (26-6) recently made it known that he had been cleared to return to training following a rib injury. “The California Kid” was defeated by Renan Barao in a bout for the interim UFC bantamweight title this past summer.
Lee (12-8-1) has gone 1-2 since joining the UFC. He was defeated by Chris Cariaso and T.J. Dillashaw, while topping Kid Yamamoto.
