Faber looked great in his rematch against the very tough Ivan Menjivar. It is impossible to argue that he is not deserving of a title shot but the problem is he has had numerous title fights recently and came up short in all of them. Faber is 6-0 in his last six non title fights but 0-5 in his last five title fights. If Faber keeps getting title shots it will highlight how shallow the division is, something that the UFC wants to avoid. Still Faber is a huge star in MMA and with out a doubt one of the best in the world.

Faber has been one of the sports superstars for years now and truly did pave the way for the lighter weight divisions. He has not been able to find the same success in the UFC that he had in the WEC but he is always at the top of the division and isn’t going any where anytime soon. He faces veteran Ivan Menjivar this Saturday in what is sure to be an excellent fight.
The California Kid may have to win tonight if he wants to stay in the UFC according to what Dana White was saying at the pre fight scrum. Urijah is one of those guys that just hasn’t come up big against some of the best like The Dominator and Aldo. I think he wins tonight and keeps his job.

Urijah Faber hasn't lost in a non-title fight since 2005. He wasn't interested in bucking that trend last night. In a rematch of a 2006 contest that took place on Ivan Menjivar's stomping grounds, Faber would be looking to defeat his opponent in a more decisive manner. The first fight ended via DQ due to an illegal upkick that "The Pride of El Salvador" landed...
