Urijah Faber staying at 145lbs. and only dropping to 135lbs. for super fights

“I want to keep fighting at 145 lbs. If I go down to 135 lbs., it’d be for super fights only. It’s something that I can very easily do [make 135], but I’ve got a lot of friends at 135. I’m just gonna heal up and wait and see what happens…  [Asked about a possible fight with Miguel Torres] I like Miguel Torres and I don’t see a reason to fight him unless it’s a huge, monumental fight. But if that’s the case, then so be it. Right now the plan is to stay at 145 and only fight in super fights at 135. I still have a lot of stuff to improve on. This is a sport where you have to continue to evolve.”

After getting dominated by Jose Aldo at WEC 48, many MMA fans, believe Urijah Faber should drop down to 135lbs. and perhaps make a run at Dominick Cruz’s title. But while talking with Larry Pepe on MMA Pro Radio, “The California Kid” made it clear that he wants to continue to fight at 145lbs. and only drop down to 135lbs. for super fights. Faber also seemed rather uninterested at the proposition of having a bout with bantamweight fighter Miguel Torres. So what do you guys think, should Faber consider making the weight drop?
