Urijah Faber vs. Takeya Mizugaki Targeted for WEC 52 on November 7 in Sacramento

Urijah FaberThe bantamweight debut of former featherweight champ Urijah Faber against Takeya Mizugaki, originally scheduled for WEC 50 on August 18, is now likely to take place at WEC 52 on November 7 in Faber’s hometown of Sacramento, California, according to MMARising.

Faber (23-4), who was forced to withdraw from WEC 50 after suffering a knee injury earlier this month, has lost 3 of his last 5 fights since holding the 145-pound title for nearly two years, most-recently dropping a unanimous decision to featherweight champ Jose Aldo in April.

Mizugaki (13-4-2) came up short in an exciting “Fight of the Night” with bantamweight champ Miguel Torres in his WEC debut in April 2009, but has since won 2 of 3, including a unanimous decision over Rani Yahya at WEC 48.
