Faber Vs Aldo likely for January WEC card

With new WEC featherweight champ Mike Brown on the sidelines due to torn cartilage in his ribs, the organization appears set to offer former champion Urijah Faber (21-2 MMA, 6-1 WEC) a bout with heavy-handed Brazilian Jose Aldo (12-1 MMA, 2-0 WEC) at WEC 38**

Sources close to Aldo first alerted MMAjunkie**com (www**mmajunkie**com) of the potential bout, which has yet to be signed**

Faber has openly requested a rematch with Brown, but the new champ will not be ready in time for a Jan** 25, 2009, date with "The California Kid" in San Diego**

Coming off his upset loss to Brown -- Faber's first in over three years and a span of 14 fights -- the 29-year-old remains one of the most marketable stars for the WEC** While Faber would certainly prefer an immediate shot to regain his title, a chance for him to fight in his home state -- and for the WEC to capitalize on his popularity there -- would seem too good to pass up**

Aldo, a four-year veteran of professional MMA, has defeated Jonathan Brookins and Alexandre Franca Nogueira in his first two bouts with the WEC** Both victories came by way of TKO, marking the 22-year-old's sixth and seventh wins by knockout or TKO in his 13 career bouts** Aldo also holds two submission wins in his young career**

Aldo is currently on a five-fight winning streak, and last tasted defeat against PRIDE and Shooto veteran Luciano Azevedo in November 2005**
This is not an easy fight for Faber**

Oh shit, another loss for Faber** Aldo is no joke, will avoid the takedown and punch Urijah in the face a lot**

Everyone in the WEC is lucky that Soccer Kicks aren't allowed**

I picked Aldo in the PFFL, thinking he wouldn't be fighting anyone decent for a while seeing as he's just been fighting on the undercards so far** I'm still fairly confident though**

Fedor fights I want to see..

Fedor vs. Josh Barnett
Fedor vs. Randy Couture
Fedor vs. Tim Sylvia - DEMOLISHED
Fedor vs. Andrei Arlovski - DEMOLISHED

hmmmmm, i wonder how many become reality..
