Uriah Faber

Me and firend had this debate so we will let Sherdog settle it. How would Uriah Faber do in the UFC LW division?

Urijah is undersized and probably be dominated by the top lws. He would be no more then a gatekeeper. I just dont see him getting even close to title contention

he is better off in the WEC. he is a star there. if he went to the ufc, not sure how he would do. my guess is he would fail

Thank you part of our deal wasi could not givemy side till someone posted. I have meet Urijah before and I agree he is to small. He may do OK with b level fighters but never champion.

He's bigger than Frankie Edgar who holds his own at LW.

Uriah has said himself he is better off Bantamweight but fights at feather because there was more of a market.

he doesn't cut much to get to 145, so 155 isn't for him.

Why can't people just accept that Uriah is a FW?

I doubt he'd do very well. He has talked about going down to 135 as opposed to up to 155. His only loss is to current UFC LW Tyson Griffin....
