    It's not that he's a big name it's more that he beats anyone considered a contender. I do agree he needs to get more then a couple wins to get another shot at the title though problem of course is that he derails other challengers in the process.

    I'd also disagree that he lost either the Cruz or Barao fight in one sided manner.

    I think Faber will run through him pretty quickly.

    Frankie Edgar vs. Cub Swanson was considered as TUF Finale replacement main event - MMA Fighting

    The organization first approached featherweights Frankie Edgar and Cub Swanson about headlining the show, but the fight never materialized after Swanson told the UFC he wasn't healthy enough to take the fight.

    "I'm still a little banged up from my fight with (Dustin) Poirier and five weeks isn't enough time to prepare for a five-round fight," Swanson wrote via text message.

    Scott's been in quite a few wars and has seemed to be showing it recently the Wineland and Barao fights, I'll take Faber on workrate and size.
