Urijah Faber is scheduled to face Frankie Edgar on May 16th and the the fight could lead to the winner of Conor McGregor – Jose Aldo at UFC 189 for the Featherweight title. Faber recently spoke about McGregor – Aldo fight.
“I wouldn’t mind fighting Conor,” said Faber. “I’ll tell you what — he’s got something that a lot of guys don’t have. Something a guy like me doesn’t have, a guy like Chad Mendes doesn’t have, a guy like Frankie Edgar doesn’t have, and that’s the instincts and willingness to give up when he’s about to get knee barred. I wouldn’t give up. Come on … His knee was in danger of having some pain inflicted on it and he was like, ‘I’m out.'”
If either Faber or Edgar win the fight impressively, they could earn a title shot against either Aldo or McGregor.
