Since UFC 181 will feature Johny Hendricks-Robbie Lawler II and Anthony Pettis-Gilbert Melendez, it’s not terribly surprising that Urijah Faber’s next bout has gotten lost a wee bit in the mix.
Of course, none of this means that Faber’s next fight shouldn’t be watched by all, as he’ll take on punishing striker, Francisco Rivera.
In advance of the bout, the UFC has released highlights of Faber’s last win, which came against Alex Caceres in July. You can watch the clip below.
A UFC title continues to evade Faber, but “The California Kid” keeps sticking right at the top of the UFC’s bantamweight ranks.
UFC 181 will be hosted by the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas.
