Perennial UFC star Urijah Faber has been making the media rounds to promote his UFC 169 title fight against bantamweight champ Renan Barao, and the latest stop on the tour was an appearance on AXS TV’s “Inside MMA” show. Talking with hosts Bas Rutten and Kenny Rice, “The California Kid” hearkened back to UFC 149 on July 21, 2012 – a bout Faber feels was somewhat lackluster. He vowed that the February 1 bout will be different.

Does Faber have what it takes to defeat the champ, even though he’s already given up a five-round decision to the Brazilian? Will the short, three-week notice for the match-up play a factor? Who knows. But the answers will come to us for sure at UFC 169.
