Steroids in MMA
Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

Reminder: Urijah Faber Makes His 135-Pound Debut Tonight

(Photos courtesy of the WEC 52 Weigh In Pics gallery on CombatLifestyle)

Urijah Faber made his public 135-pound debut yesterday at the weigh-ins for tonight’s WEC 52 event — and didn’t look a whole lot different than he did at featherweight. That’s an encouraging sign for his career rebirth at bantamweight, and it’s more than we can say for Wagnney Fabiano, who’s also on tonight’s card in his second bantamweight appearance, and is pretty freaking gross from certain angles these days. (As for Faber, he had already put on 18 pounds by last night.) WEC 52 will be broadcast live on Versus starting at 9 p.m. ET / 6 p.m. PT. Pre-fight coverage begins at 8:30 p.m. ET, and post-fight coverage is slated for 11:30 p.m. ET.

Takeya Mizugaki is tough as nails, How he didn't tap was amazing.
Nighty night, Takeya,....sweet dreams.
Great card.

Just watched the Eric Koch fight, and realized hes a scary dude. Fighting skills and pale appearance. Also noticed he had no nickname. Might i suggest Eric "Nosferatu" Koch, i think its fitting

They should do same day weigh-ins. I know, I know, this is the way it's always been, but this shit's getting ridiculous! Dude looks Somalian..

^That's funny as shit. One up as usual.

The shadow from the scale in the first picture makes it look suspiciously like Urijah just pissed his pants. Maybe he could start training with the Machidas, they could keep him around like the family cow. Mooooooo. Bessy!

@Fried Taco- haha

I think Benavidez vs. Fabiano is going to be FOTN.

Faber looks very weak. I think the weight cut will play a big factor in this fight. Don't forget Mizugaki went 5 Rds. with Torres?

Fabiano's body looks like James Irvins face when he cut to 185.

Like seriously, Cub Swanson is a household name and Wagnney Fabiano is not a bad guy either.

@ Charming Charlie:

You've been watching for 2 years and you've never heard names like Damacio Page, Wagnney Fabiano, Anthony Njokuani, Cub Swanson? Then you haven't been paying attention worth shit. Especially if you haven't taken note of a straight-up killer like Page.

You don't know Mackens Semeiszieizer or Cub Swanson? Fabiano? Really?

I've been watching WEC since around 2008 and Joseph Benavidez is the only fighter besides Uriah Faber I know on that list.

In the video you can see the camera man is also topless when he videotapes in the bathroom. Maybe Bob Arum is on to something. Two topless musclemen in a luxury suite with the fireplace going and a video camera rolling...

I dunno man, he's starting to look like Urijah "The Anatomy Lesson" Faber to me.
Koeikan- November 11, 2010 at 1:22 pm
I thought he looked fairly drawn out (especially in his face) and he commented that it was rough towards the end (or something like that), but he seemed to be in pretty good spirits.
hooligun- November 11, 2010 at 1:21 pm
he put 18lbs back by last night! that is fkn amazing!

I wonder how much weight he lost from his chin.
