Urijah Faber talks to MMAMania.com about his upcoming rematch with Mike Brown for the WEC Featherweight Championship at WEC 41 on June 7th in Sacromento, CA:
Urijah Faber: I just watched the fight again last night. I trained hard for that fight. I did not take Mike Brown lightly at all. He caught me with a heavy punch and that is a situation I put myself in. I was not unconscious on the ground, and was still defending myself, but I can see why the referee would end the fight.
As far as I go, I know that I put 100% in that fight. I made a mistake and Mike Brown capitalized on that. I am looking forward to avenging that. I’ve competed my whole life and it’s not the first time I have felt defeat before. I hate to lose but having the belt doesn’t define who I am. It’s how I live my life and what I put into things is what defines me.
It will be easy for me to come back with that mentality. I am going to take back my belt and reign on top again. I will exact my revenge on Brown and have fun while doing it. I will do my part to make it exciting; I don’t think the fans will be disappointed.
