During the WEC 46 post fight press conference, it was announced that Urijah Faber will be next in line to take on Jose Aldo for the WEC featherweight belt. It was thought that Faber would have to take on Mike Brown again before getting the title shot against Aldo, but WEC President Reed Harris said at the press conference “I think Faber is ready and I think the Aldo vs Faber fight is what people want to see.”

Urijah Faber impressed last night, chocking out Raphael Assuncao at WEC 46 “Varner vs Henderson”.

Harris also told media that he is looking at Aldo vs Faber to headline the first ever WEC Pay-Per-View telecast.
