Urijah Faber vs Mike Brown WEC 36 fight possible on September 10


After his career-defining win over Jens Pulver, Urijah Faber (21-1) will likely return to the cage to defend his WEC featherweight title against Mike Brown at WEC 36 on September 10, according to MMAWeekly.com.

"The California Kid" outstruck and outwrestled "Lil Evil" for five rounds at WEC 34 last month en route to a unanimous decision victory over the former UFC champion. He was clearly the faster fighter and had Pulver hurt in the second round, demonstrating that his striking prowess has caught up with his superb wrestling pedigree.

He will look to extend his 13 fight win streak against American Top Team fighter, Mike Brown.

Brown may be an unknown to many but is clearly a credible opponent to Faber's 145-pound crown. He holds notable victories over Yves Edwards and Mark Hominick. Brown also fought at WEC 34, defeating Jeff Curran via unaminous decision.

Brown is a well-versed submission fighter, winning nine of his 17 fights by submission. He will soon look to add Faber to the list ... but it will not be easy.

WEC 36 is shaping up to be another top notch fight card.

WEC Middleweight Champion Paulo Filho will defend his title again against Chael Sonnen in the main event of the evening and "Razor" Rob McCullough takes on Donald "Cowboy" Cerrone in a lightweight tilt. There is also a possibilty that Pulver could be added to card as well with speculation swirling that his opponent could be Alexandre "Pequeno" Nogueira.
