Almeida made headlines earlier this month by taking out Anthony Birchak with a thunderous right hand. That followed his flying knee, KO win over Brad Pickett in July, and was his fourth UFC victory in a row.
“I don’t choose very much, but I think Faber would be a great challenge in my career,” Almeida said. “He’s very good, he is famous and is good at wrestling. Many people say I haven’t proven myself yet, so hopefully that would shut them up and everyone would see how well trained and confident I am. I’m a big fan of Faber and he’s above me in the rankings.”
It’s a fight that a lot of people would like to see no? First things first though. Faber is scheduled to take on Frankie Saenz at UFC 194 on December 12th.
