Let's try this again.
After Urijah Faber was forced to pull out of his bantamweight debut against Takeya Mizugaki at WEC 50 last month because of a knee injury, the promotion has rescheduled the bout for WEC 52, which is set to go down on November 11 from The Pearl at The Palms in Las Vegas, Nevada.
MMA Weekly confirmed the news earlier today.
Faber was recently pushed out of the 145-pound weight class by reigning division champion Jose Aldo. Aside from a Jens Pulver submission win, "The California Kid" dropped consecutive fights to his temporary successor Mike Brown, first at WEC 36 and then again at WEC 41.
His frame may be better served at 135-pounds, but don't expect any liberties from Mizugaki.
The rugged Japanese brawler made a name for himself in his promotion debut, giving then-champion Miguel Torres all he could handle for five rounds in the main event of WEC 40 back in April 2009.
Since that loss, Mizugaki has gone 2-1 for the promotion, defeating Jeff Curran (WEC 42) and Rani Yahya (WEC 48) but losing on points to Scott Jorgensen at WEC 45. A convincing win over a "name" like Faber could possibly get him right back into contention.
