Ivan Menjivar vs. Urijah faber set for UFC 157 in Anaheim, Cal

That’s right, you just heard it right here on MMACanada.net.  Montreal’s very own, Tristar product Ivan Menjivar will battle former WEC champion Urijah Faber on Superbowl weekend (Feb, 2, 2013) in Anaheim, California.

The rumors of Vaughan Lee battling Urijah Faber have now been squashed, with Tatame bringing word of the proposed 135-bout between Menjivar and Faber.

Quebec’s Menjivar will try to even the score from their initial 2006 encounter where Faber walked away with a DQ victory after Menjivar landed an illegal kick when Faber was down in the second round.

Faber comes off a title-loss to Renan Barao at UFC 149 which took place in Calgary Alberta.

Menjivar is fresh off a first-round submission victory over Russia’s Azamat Gashimov at UFC 154.

Jose Aldo and Frankie Edgar will be the night’s main-event attraction as they lock horns for the 145-pound strap.
