    Should be a good fight seeing as both guys are pretty much mirrors of each other.

    But shouldn't Faber be the number 1 contender right now? He did just win a fight.

    Jorgensen doesn't look like himself any more since the loss to Cruz, which sucks because he was one of my favorites when he was tearing it up. Faber looked great in his last fight, really have to hand it to him he's a true professional. No matter how many times he loses he always comes back looking great.

    smart move by faber stepping up and taking this fight. Hes the clear favourite IMO and should be able to beat Jorgensen. Another win for faber only strengthens his case for a shot at cruz or barao, most likely Barao as i dont see Cruz coming back in time for a mid-summer fight with Barao.

    Faber has gotten 4 titles shots in the last 4 years and lost every single one of them. Hell he has only won a total of 4 rounds out of a possible 16. In order for him to get another title shot he should have to go on a at least a 5 fight win streak. I get it that he is a "big name" but he is getting title shots on a yearly basis and losing one sidely. Dude needs to earn this time around.

    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.
