Feels like Faber is in the Franklin spot at this juncture. He's a big name and a company guy, but he's somewhat in stasis at the moment.
Faber's losses to Cruz and Barao put him, at the very least a distant third in the division but when you factor in Faber's wins over top BW challengers such as Wineland, Mizugaki, Assuncao and Bowles, there aren't a terrible amount of top matches against top tier BWs to make unless they want to have Faber almost immediately back in the title mix, as matchups with McDonald, Pickett and Easton (who are coming along as the next-in-line contenders at the moment) are all winnable fights for Faber. Since McDonald is up against Barao for the interim potentially and Pickett is tied up with Wineland(who Faber has a win over), they're kind of in a pickle as to how to match him up.
Personally, I'd like to see Faber/Menjivar II just for funzies, but from a business prospective, if they want to bank in on Faber's name value and attempt to build some new stars, I really don't see this being a fight to do it, except to give him a win. Going forward, I think it might be best for business to start using Faber to develop names, I don't see Lee as being one of them.
