WEC 46 MMA fight Urijah Fabor returns !


Cagewriter will have full coverage of the WEC lightweight title fight between Ben Henderson and Jamie Varner from Arco Arena in Sacramento. WEC 46 also marks the return of former featherweight champs, Mike Brown and Urijah Faber. With Faber, a Sacramento-native on the card, the WEC expects a crowd in excess of 9,000.




"I feel like I am a little bit faster, and a little bit all over stronger," Faber told News10 in Sacramento. "But for me it is more than just being big, it is about being athletic."



Faber is returning from a seven-month absence. He suffered a broken right hand and a dislocated thumb on his left hand in a loss at WEC 41 to Mike Brown.
