Yes Kid is still with K1 and no they will never let him go, Kid is pretty much a god in that organization. Unless Faber starts getting worked over in WEC and they let him go(which at that point the fight wouldnt have the hype anyways) this fight will never happen so who gives a shit.

to be honest as good a Urjah is I don't think he's been tested by a fighter anywhere near the caliber of Kid. I think Yamamoto would take this fairly easily.

I think Kid would win, obviously. Urijah is a great fighter but I think Kid is just better than him at basically everything.

I've seen Kid in the audience at some WEC events, and he has trained with AKA before...don't know what their relationship is as of right now though. Dana wants him really bad, I wouldn't say it's impossible.

He's talking about Kid, not Faber, and Faber doesn't train at AKA.

If these 2 guys fight, I think a ton of MMA fans would be in for a big surprise. American wrestlers are generally better than the rest of the world. So I wouldnt say that Kid is def the better wrestler. Faber has insane cardio and I think he would outwork Kid and win a UD. Faber is a beast man.

Ill tell you one fight I wouldnt minde seeing,and its Faber vs Edgar. Edgar is a pretty small LW so a drop in weight wouldnt be out of the question. It wont happen but it would be pretty sick if it did.

Kid went to school in Arizona and went to state championships all 4 years...3rd place his freshman year and he won 1st place for the next 3.

How is Urijah going to beat him? He's not gonna knock him out. He can't keep Kid on his back the whole fight, are you kidding me? Nobody can keep Kid on his back, the dude doesn't train with other 145ers...he's been fighting guys who walk around 20-30 pounds heavier than him his whole career. Urijah is not gonna keep Kid on his back for long, if at all. He's not gonna sub Kid. If Bibiano Fernandes, a world champion in BJJ, couldn't get a sub locked in on him (Kid was escaping subs from this guy like butter last fight, just like he did with Curran), how is Urijah gonna do it?

WL2FU really knows his stuff on Kid.. lol

Kid was freaking training for the wrestling olympics, so let's just say his wrestling is close to unquestionnable.

That being said, i dont know if Kid still is as good as he was.. i havent seen or heard about him fighting lately ever since he got injured while training for the olympics.. and that was a while ago.

But, Faber's ground is pretty damn good, so i think it would be a great match.

Bring back knees strikes on grounded opponents.. Give me good arguments for not having them for crying out loud.

He just fought Bibiano Fernandes to a decision. You might be able to find it on dailymotion. Bibiano isn't very established as an MMA fighter yet but he is a BJJ world champion. Kid spent most of the fight GnPing and escaping submissions. Something went on after the first round and it really caused a lot of momentum to drop, I don't remember exactly what it was but it took FOREVER for them to get back to fighting.

Kid didn't look great in his last fight. I mean he looked good but not as good as he usually looks.

That being said I think he would handle Faber. I mean look what he did to Curran it was a 3 round beating.
