It appears “The California Kid” will make his return to action in, you guessed it, Cali. According to MMAWeekly, Urijah Faber (Pictured) will meet Ivan Menjivar at UFC 157.
Faber is one of the most accomplished competitors in mixed martial arts history. However, the 33-year-old has dropped two of his past three scraps. Furthermore, Faber’s last four defeats have come when gold was on the line.
Menjivar, meanwhile, is victorious in four of his last five big league bouts. The lone blemish during his current streak came against Mike Easton.
The bantamweight battle will appear in the event’s pay-per-view broadcast.
Honda Center in Anaheim, California hosts the festivities.
