    He has a tough assignment in the (15-1) Ricky Simon for his comeback fight on 13th July in Sacramento.
    With there still being a lot of bad blood between the 2 I wouldn't be surprised if UFC tries to set up him against Dillishaw when he comes backs from his suspension in January,it would probably be an easy win for Dillishaw tho.

    Faber's in shape and I'm sure he can still beat some lower level guys on the UFC roster but Simon isn't one of them.

    Yeah I agree I wasn't shocked to see him comeback but I was surprised with this match up.

    Faber earned my respect last weekend for surviving the never ending death-trap that is Nicky Ryan, even though he mostly just stalled.

    He seems to be a bit of a Bernard Hopkins figure in that he seems to love the fighting lifestyle in terms to mastering technique and staying in shape. That bodes well for him, but the bad sign is that there was a pretty clear deterioration in his last several performances. He looked sketchy during one or two of the wins before the 3rd fight with Cruz, and then Cruz beat his ass pretty handily. I heard he looked flat against Jimmie Rivera, although I didn't catch that fight.
