Urijah Faber now has a date for his return to the cage. The former WEC featherweight champion Urijah Faber will take on Raphael Assuncao at WEC 46 on Jan 10 from the ARCO Arena in Sacramento, CA.

The World Extreme Cagefighting will once again utilize Fabers popularity in SoCal to pull in a big gate at the ARCO Arena in January.

Faber (22-3), lost his cherished WEC featherweight belt to Mike Brown back at WEC 36. After a second win over Jens Pulver, “The California Kid” unsuccessfully made a second run at Brown, but came up short losing the unanimous decision.

Assuncao is 2-0 in his short WEC career. He holds impressive wins over Joe Lauzon, Jorge Masvidal and Yves Jabouin.

    Ummm… Sacramento (where Urijah's gym AND ARCO Arena are located) is not in Southern California. ;-)
