Urijah FaberEarly reports had Urijah Faber taking on Jose Aldo at WEC 38.  Now it’s coming from MMA Junkie that Jose Aldo is out and a rematch between Faber and Pulver is likely.  Urijah Faber was looking for a rematch for WEC 38 but wasn’t with Mike Brown as he was hoping for, yet against Jens Pulver.

Jens Pulver’s career is in tango right now as he has lost his last couple fights and is almost in a must win situation. Pulver’s last loss came from Leornard Garcia who is arguable the top contender for the title shot now after demolishing Pulver in the first round.  Pulver is 4 - 6 in his last 10 fights.  However he has lost to big names such as Faber, Garcia, and BJ Penn.

Jose Aldo, even though pulling out of his fight with Faber, is still rumored to make a WEC 38 appearance.  While the fights aren’t finalized, the opponent for Aldo being tossed around right now is Josh Grispi who is 12 - 1 in MMA and 2 - 0 in the WEC.

WEC 38 is set to take place January 25th 2009, the day after Affliction Day of Reckoning.  These fights above will be headlined by Champion Jamie Varner vs Donald Cerrone for the lightweight title.  IT is set to take placce in San DIego, California.

    In my own humble oppinion I believe Pulver is over the Hill. I can’t see him ever retaining the belt again.Maybe he could go down to 135.
