"I’ll be back at April 5 and we’ll see what will happen. I still don’t know who’s gonna be my opponent, but I think It’ll be [Urijah] Faber. And I’ll be ready for him. I have to be well trained, with no injuries at all and I’m already training for this fight. I sincerely think that I’d complicate his life with my game style. He’s good fighting standing, but I don’t fear his striking at all. The deal is be careful with those elbows, but we’ll see. We’ll set a good strategy for him.
Former IFL Featherweight Champion Wagnney Fabiano (11-1) prepares for a rumored showdown with former WEC Featherweight Champion Urijah Faber at WEC 40 in Chicago this April. The Brazilian is riding a seven-fight win streak, including a submission win over Akitoshi Tamurahis in his WEC debut back at WEC 37 last December. It looks as if "The California Kid" may have one last hurdle to clear before trying to regain his 145-pound title from either Mike Brown or Leonard Garcia, depending on the outcome of WEC 39. No question Fabiano will be looking to hand Faber another loss so that he can take his place.
