Fabiano says next fight at WEC 40 could be against Faber

Former IFL featherweight champion and current WEC featherweight title contender Wagnney Fabiano has revealed that his next fight is scheduled for WEC 40 on Sunday, April 5.

Fabiano made the revelation during a recent interview with the Brazilian MMA web site

According to Fabiano, his next opponent could be none other than the “California Kid” himself, former WEC featherweight champion Urijah Faber.

“I’ll be back at April 5 and we’ll see what will happen,” Fabiano told Tatame. “I still don’t know who’s gonna be my opponent, but I think It’ll be Faber. And I’ll be ready for him.”

According to Fabiano, he’s already begun preparing for him.

“I have to be well trained, with no injuries at all and I’m already training for this fight,” Fabiano is quoted. “I sincerely think that I’d complicate his life with my game style. He’s good fighting standing, but I don’t fear his striking at all. The deal is be careful with those elbows, but we’ll see. We’ll set a good strategy for him.”

The Rio de Janeiro native has not fought since making his WEC debut at WEC 37 this past December. Facing former Shooto star Akitoshi Tamura, Fabiano was victorious after securing an armbar submission at 4:48 of round 3.

    Wow! Already?

    Not that I’m complaining, this fight should be epic.

  • Tidalwave says:

    I thought Fabiano won with an arm triangle choke.

  • CubanLinx69 says:

    although this fight is definately inevitable, and im excited to see it, it should wait. i think Urijah should get a shot to win back his title for his next fight, which will hopefully be a rematch with Brown. also, Wagney should have to win at least one more fight in WEC since there are others, like obviously Jose Aldo, for instance who would be more deserving of a shot at Faber.

  • JOe K. says:

    This featherweight division is getting more stacked by the week.

    Even if this fight doesn’t take place there are a ton of great match ups in this division.
