After recording another, highlight reel stoppage at UFC Fight Night 77, Thomas Almeida wants to test himself against one of the promotion’s top 135érs in the sport, Mr. Urijah Faber.

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.

Recently the Brazilian fighter spoke to Combate about his future, and while doing so, Almeida said this (quote via Bloody Elbow.com):

“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.
