I've seen Faber fight a few times. He's one of the best 145 lbs. fighters in the word. He's very well rounded, with submission skills, and KO power. He has some of the best elbows I've seen from a smaller fighter.

You haven't seen him fight in UFC or PRIDE yet because he normally only fights at 145. He has to bulk up just to get to 155. Tyson Griffin had to drop to 145 just to fight him.

Faber is signed with the WFA now though, and will be fighting on their December card. His rumored opponent is "Razor" Rob McCullough. So I guess he might be moving up to 155 for WFA. Unless Rob is dropping to 145.

he is a bad ass. i hope they do a 145 div. there is a guy where i train mike "the hulk " easton who will be champ when they make the new div. i've had a chance to work out with him a couple times, he has given me alot of good pointers. he is with out a doubt one of the most well rounded fighters i've ever seen.

Cool man. I'll have to look out for Easton. Haven't heard of him before. I looked him up on Fight Finder and they have him at 2-0. Good start to his career. I'll be looking forward to see him in the future.

For those who are interested, Faber will be fighting Fabio Mello of Brazilian Top Team at the WFA:King Of The Streets II-USA vs. Brazil event. Should be a pretty good match! The fight will be at 145 lbs.
