“The hard part on my side is, nobody knows who the heck he is and there’s nothing really to gain. He’s ranked No. 13 in the (UFC) rankings, and I’m ranked No. 3. He’s a dangerous fight. There wasn’t much out there for me. So I can just be thankful I have a fight – I get paid when I have a fight, my name’s out there when I have a fight, I get to do what I love when I have a fight. So as long as I approach it like that – the thing to gain here is another win on my record and one step closer to getting that belt, which is my goal, and putting on a great show for the fans. That’s what this means.”

    Faber is a joke, has the most title fights and complains about his next opponent. He’ll lose this fight, mma has revoled and he still the same WEC fighter!

      I here what your saying, but lets be real here. The UFC messed this one up. Faber does deserve a higher ranking opponent. Pickett is on the same card, Faber should have be paired up with him and swapped with Michael McDonald. And one more thing, Faber is a joke because he’s been losing to the No. 1 Bantam Weight fighters in the UFC but he beats everyone else? Since when does losing to the best in the world mean your a joke? Once he loses to someone out of the top 10, then you can call him a joke.

      Doesn’t sound like he’s complaining. Just answering a question and making a point. Unlike some other fighters, Faber will fight anyone the UFC puts in front of him. Would you step in the cage with him? Didn’t think so. lol Makes me laugh to hear people hate on a fighter, and not willing to do the job himself. And yes, you pay me, I’d fight any fighter. Not saying I’d win, but I’d step in.

    Well… The most being two title fights and he’s 4-2 in the ufc. He also had a buttload of title victories in the WEC.
    Chael Sonnen by comparison is 4-5 and has 3 title shots, all lost.
    Not a fanboy, just saying….

    Faber is an unbelievable fighter. He is top shelf and a class guy. He is been around allot longer than people seem to remember. I think he is great for the sport and always fun to watch. This guy Long says he’s a joke. Take a look at what he has done in his career and see who is the joke for making a statemenet like that !! Fight on Faber you are a great talent and good for the sport!
