Instead of getting an immediate rematch with Mike Thomas Brown, Urijah Faber reportedly will face off against Jens Pulver one more time.
The two featherweights squared off back in June at WEC 34 with “The California Kid” defeating Pulver via unanimous decision after five hard fought rounds.
The number one featherweight contender spot gets awarded to Leonard Garcia (12-3) who will receive the first crack at Mike Thomas Brown’s 145 pound title. Garcia stopped Pulver at 1:12 in the first at WEC 36, the same event where Brown took Faber’s title.
