Urijah Faber Wants Big Fights, Miguel Torres, BJ Penn On Radar


<p>Former WEC Featherweight Champion Urijah Faber has big plans for his future of which include possible superfights with the likes of UFC Lightweight Champ BJ Penn and former 135lb kingpin Miguel Torres. Faber talked to the crowd at the UFC 109 Q&amp;A this past weekend:</p><br /><br /><br /><br /><p>&quot;I could go down to 135 pounds if he (Torres) wants to fight. I'm here for a long time so I'll probably fight everybody. Miguel is in there. (Mike) Brown, I'm going to fight him again. (Jose) Aldo, I'll take care of that. I didn't know for sure if Miguel would come to 145 and he's got his hands full with my boy Joseph Benavidez (on March 6), so we'll see how he does there first before I even think about fighting him…. That's a super fight (with B.J. Penn). I've thought about that. B.J. and I went to a USO show together. We're buddies and we've trained together but we're in the fight game to find out who's the man and I'm sure B.J. doesn't have a problem fighting me and I don't have a problem fighting him. We'd be buddies after.&quot;</p><br /><br /><br /><br /><p>Faber, who will be looking to regain the 145lb title when he faces champ Jose Aldo at WEC 48, as the company takes a stab at transitioning to the PPV market, will have his hands full with the man who knocked out Mike Brown. Brown, as you may remember, beat Faber twice, taking the title from him and then defending the strap before losing it to Aldo last year. Could the &quot;California Kid&quot; be counting his chickens before they hatch?</p><br /><br /><br /><p>Props to the <a href=http://www.lasvegassun.com>Las Vegas Sun</a> for the quote.</p><br /><br type="_moz" />
