“I don’t know if they would do a pay-per-view for this one,” Faber told the Sherdog Radio Network’s “Beatdown” show on Monday. “Probably not. I think they’re going to do some build-up. Maybe toward the end of the year they would do a pay-per-view, but I don’t think this is going to be a pay-per-view.”
Arguably the promotion’s brightest star alongside bantamweight champ Miguel Torres, Faber has flourished as an MMA spokesman on the Versus Network, which has broadcasted live WEC events since mid 2007. Faber seemed partial to his second go with Brown (21-4) there.
“Versus is putting a lot of investment in this as well and they’re having big fights. [The WEC] kind of owe it to them to have it on there, so it is what it is,” said the 28-year-old Faber. “It’s a fight that’s going to draw a lot of viewers and it’ll be for free I’m thinking.”
