    If he beats Michael McDonald and then another top ten BW that would be 5 wins in a row.

    Menjivar
    Jorgensen
    Alcantara (who lets not forget destroyed Ricardo Llamas)
    McDonald
    and whoever??

    There are not many top BW's that Faber hasnt already faced.

    A Brad Pickett Matchup?? nahhhhh we already know Faber would dominate.

    Faber will still be getting title shots so be prepared!!!

    Eventually he will fight Cruz again too

    I guess you could give him the rematch with Barao.

    But I think Faber wants that triology with Cruz and I think he has a better shot at Cruz than Barao, so he may want to wait.

    McDonald would be a great win though, and Faber's definitely already #3 at BW.

    I'd love to see him and Cruz fight a third time. And obviously I would hope he wins in dominant fashion, then defend the title 2 or 3 times and retire as a champ.

    Beating Mayday should be enough for a title shot. BW isn't really stacked

    Denied!

    Nah seriously, a win over Mayday is enough imo. I got Mayday but it's a great fight and tough one to call

    You may as well just have Faber fight the champion over and over until he finally wins.

    Faber is always 2nd best in the division. He's too good.

    I'm livid he turned down the Edgar fight.

    We all know Faber is championship quality. But he's had so many cracks now it's going to be very tough to justify another shot anytime soon.

    He should have gone for the Edgar fight. He would have made a lot of money.

    Agreed. That win warrants another shot regardless of his record in title shots under the zuffa banner

    The Faber- McDonald winner is going to get a title shot at the winner of Barao v Cruz. There will be no need for Faber to win another fight if he wins he gets the shot. This will be a tough fight though and I wouldn't be surprised if McDonald pulls it off.

    You say this like it's a lock. Has it been confirmed?

    Not really possible, Faber is a contender killer who can't beat the current champs but leaves the higher ups no choice but to make him fight for a title.

    Im not a big fan of Faber but I have to admit he looks really good of late. Maybe its Ludwig or maybe its just him getting smarter but he does deserve a shot.

    I think the winner of Barao/Wineland will end up fighting Cruz in their next fight if his plan still is to return at the beginning of 2014. Realistically the winner of Faber/McDonald deserves to fight for the belt (whether it be Barao's or Cruz's if he's back).

    No but there are no other contenders that even come remotely close to these two.

    He just needs to keep using that incredible grappling as his go to...

    He is the best grappler/scrambler in the division
