    i get that faber gets a lot of shots, but i dont think he was ever given anything (except for the rematch w/ brown). he dropped down, beat 2 good opponents and earned the first shot at the bw title. he did get another shot rather quickly, but in his defense, he was the number 2 (or 3) bantamweight and defeated brian bowles (who was also ranked 2 or 3).
    this time, he'll definitely need about 3 wins to get back into contention. gotta admit, urijah is a finisher so it prolly wont take him long.

    53& a 1/8th% Doesn't matter just having some fun. Sure is a high precentage with either figures.
    Now that I busted you I'll watch myself closer so it = a win win for the forum

    Highest ever in MMA?

    Why would someone who lost 4 title shots in a row, even mention the word "contender"?

    On another note, I really wouldn't mind seeing him move up to fight Frankie Edgar.

    I feel for you. I HATED the stats classes I had to take. SPSS call lick my coin purse.

    The only time I ever cheated in university was in my 300 level stats class lab. The stupid lab was for 3 hours on Friday mornings, the school pub had Thursty Thursdays aka stupid cheap beer specials on Thursday nights. It was there fault I would copy a buddies lab print outs I tell you.

    Then again, some people like stats

    Since I'm literally in STATs class right now, I'll break it down even further.

    Fighting for Title - 7 times
    Defending Title - 9 times

    All title defenses came from 2005-2008.

    Only 2 of his fighting for the title fights came in 2005-2008, 1 for the KOTC title and 1 for the WEC title.

    4 times from 2009-2012 he fought for the title without winning. That was literally one title shot a year. (09, 10, 11, and 12)

    Since 2009, he is 0-4 in title fights. He's also 5-0 in non title bouts/title eliminator fights since 2009.
