Vaughan Lee Shoots Down Rumored Urijah Faber Bout

Vaughan Lee isn’t sure where anyone got the idea he was fighting Urijah Faber in 2013. Because, if he is, that’s news to Lee.

The bout was reported last month for UFC 156: Aldo vs. Edgar. Lee, however, recently told Fighters Only in an interview that he has not been approached about facing “The California Kid.”

“It’s a rumor, I haven’t heard anything from the UFC confirming it,” Lee said. “I heard about me fighting Faber over Twitter. People were like, ‘Well, you’re fighting Faber and all this,’ and I was like, ‘Am I? Oh, cool.’ It’s just a rumor; we haven’t heard anything.”

Lee (12-8-1) lost to Faber’s Team Alpha Male teammate, T.J. Dillashaw, in his most recent bout, falling to 1-2 inside the Octagon. Faber, meanwhile, was defeated by Renan Barao earlier this year in a bout for the interim UFC bantamweight title.
