Urijah Faber Calls Out Kid Yamamoto

After Choking out Dominic Cruz at WEC 26 you can hear him say to the camera "Kid Yamamoto, What's up?" Now, I don't know how you guys feel, but where exactly is Faber better than KID?

His wrestling isn't as good, his striking isn't as good...I just don't see it for Faber. He's great where he's at, but he's not on KID's level. I just wanted to see what you all thought.

Discuss.

Totally agree, plus Kid has his ridiculously freakish strength. Hopefully Faber doesn't buy into to all the North American-centric MMA fans and media types who think he's the greatest 145er in the history of the world. I think he'd be in for a rude awakening against any of the top 5 FWs out there right now.

Faber is good but honestly he couldn't beat Kid. Now on the other hand if he isn't focused Jeff Curran will beat him since Big Frog aint no joke.

what rankings were you looking at? i havent seen a single ranking with faber at #1 and kid isnt even in the top 10 because he usually fights people in higher weight class than his natural weight in lightweight i'd have kid in top 10

I agree also but I would still love to see this fight and have always been wondering if it could happen. Is KID with K-1 Heroes still?
