    Urijah Faber has asked the UFC to fight on one of those shows but the UFC has said they can't find any fights for him.

    Kenny said he should fight Caraway, DC says Sterling.

    Either of those guys work, I think Manny G and Almedia would work as well

    I want to see him fight Eduardo but I don't know what's the deal with his inactivity.

    I kind of want the Sterling fight, but that might be too soon for him, so I'd rather see the Caraway fight.

    If Faber isn't gonna fight TJ I dunno if I want him potentially knocking off top contenders. The BW rankings are filled with guys who are either very inactive, hurt or both.

    Faber vs Kawajiri would be cool.

    I want him back at 145lbs just for the fuck of it. If not, then give him sterling.

    Urijah could get himself to another shot at gold if he would agree to fight TJ. Maybe he's just competing for the sake of it?

    He also wants a fight in December to be waiting in the wings and ready if Aldo pulls out, Not saying that he will, However. He sees the big dollars with Conor, But Faber gets put to sleep imo

    I'm sure Dana will sign some can from Boise to promote as the "real deal" to ME the undercard.

    Sterling works for me!

    Weidman is getting ready for Dec 11th so that makes sense as well.

    Who should he fight that makes sense at this time?

    Raphael Assuncao? Aljamain Sterling? Thomas Almeida at 135 or

    Cub Swanson? Hacran Dias? at 145

    Personally give me Sterling at 135 or Swanson at 145

    Max Holloway. Either Max emerges as a new contender or Faber re-establishes himself at 145.
