This is what Faber hat to say via sherdog.com….
“There’s no doubt that everybody knows that the UFC is the top brand. I think people who know MMA know that the WEC has the most exciting fighters. I think the combination is going to be great. Some people either think that we are the UFC or think that I fight in the UFC or they ask, ‘When you going to go to the big show?’”
“For me, I’ve known for a long time that we’re the top fighters in the world at our weights, but not everyone else understands that. We don’t have to explain it anymore. That’s great. Business-wise, you look at the bonuses, you’re going from $10,000 to $65,000. Pay-per-view averages and everything else is up, and viewership’s up.”
“The bottom line is, I feel like I resonate with fans. You couple that with the UFC fan base, it’s going to be a great thing. I’m looking forward to having my brightest days in the future. I feel great at this new weight. My body feels incredible, and I’m still motivated to fight. These next couple of years are going to be awesome.”
