Urijah Faber Now Expected to Return in January, Rafael Assuncao Possible Opponent

Urijah FaberFormer WEC featherweight champ Urijah Faber, out of action since suffering a broken hand in a June loss to Mike Brown, is now expected to return in January, the fighter announced during Saturday’s WEC 43 broadcast.

Though Faber failed to mention an opponent for the bout, it appears WEC 43 winner Rafael Assuncao is the leading candidate, as the WEC asked him at the post-fight press conference whether he’d be interested in a matchup with “The California Kid”.

“I think that would be a good fight,” Assuncao replied.
