Arguably the biggest fight in the history of the World Extreme Cagefighting (WEC), Mike Brown (21-4) defends his featherweight crown against former champion “The California Kid” Urijah Faber (22-2) tonight (Sunday) at the ARCO Arena in Sacramento, CA. The contest is one of the most important rematches to ever take place in MMA, comes after Brown took the title from Faber seven months ago. Then considered to be a mega upset, the unheralded Brown stunned Faber with a first round knockout victory in November 2008. Brown has established himself as a powerhouse since capturing the crown, submitting hardcore veteran Leonard Garcia in his first title defense in March. Determined to get his championship back, Sacramento’s Faber scored a convincing submission victory over former champion Jens Pulver in January. Brown vs. Faber II airs live on VERSUS beginning at 9pm ET / 6pm PT.
