    from sherdog:

    Tyson Griffin: I like Mike Brown just because he’s a sound fighter, to be honest. Obviously I’m not a big fan of Urijah’s for obvious reasons. But outside of that … he’s a reckless fighter who hasn’t learned to not be reckless until he needs to be. I think that Mike Brown being the sound fighter that he’s been for years, he’s going to be consistently sound and not make a mistake where Urijah will make a mistake. … I think stylistically, Mike Brown is a terrible matchup for him. I see a finish. It could go to a decision -- Urijah could fight smart -- but again, I think Brown’s a bigger, smarter fighter, got a better camp around him, bigger guys to work with.




    what'd he mean by not being a fan "for obvious reasons"? i know Tyson beat Urijah handily back in the day at LW, but was there more than just a fight? :dunno:

    Bassically what happened was that Faber had 8 wins under his belt and was getting built up in Gladiators challenge and the king of the cage cirquit. They put him up against Tyson who was supposed to be a can and had only had two fights at the time. Tyson thought they were going to match him up with some one around his level and they ended up putting him against faber as a can. They fight and tyson wins. Faber gets pissed and throws a hissy fit. Tyson does one or two more fights at fw then he jumps up to lw for bigger pay day and because strikeforce/ufc was interested in him at this point.

    He fights on strike force then gets his UFC deal. Both guys go on winning streaks and do real good in 2007/2008. Before Tyson sighns the fight with sherk and Faber loses to brown they were running out of fights for Faber. No one thought at the time that brown was going to beat faber. Some one mentions Faber vs Griffin 2 and how it could be a huge pay day for both guys. Faber calls out Tyson Griffin and Tyson responds that he doesnt want to cut down to 145 and is bassically done with 145. He doesnt want to go down to the minor leagues with WEC when he is doing fine at 155 in the ufc. Tyson then suggest faber jumps up in weight class to fight.

    Both camps start talking smack about the other and Faber supposedly wants to push for the fight after the brown fight. This is where the story gets interesting






    On November 5 2008 Urijah Faber fought Mike Brown got all up in the cool aid and didnt know the flavor. He went up to mike brown like it was all good and mike brown said and I quote "fuck this shit" the clouds then parted a beam of light hit Mike Thomas Brown and then he was then given the ability to do double damage and he brought down the right hand of death upon Urijah Faber and made him crap his pants in an orgasmic mixure of brutality, hate and excellence, the nature of which shall be repeated soon.

    He's said in interviews that his only loss came from going up in weight against Tyson.

    that's what he claims, not sure if i buy it. you look at him, then look at Tibau and he just doesnt look that big. i guess i'll just take dude's word for it.
