Urijah Faber is a fan favorite for his aggressive style of fighting. It's made him a superstar in MMA.
However, if "The California Kid" wants to leave UFC 157 with a victory against Ivan Menjivar, he needs to fight intelligently.
Though it's gained him a great fan-base, Faber's somewhat wreckless, throw-caution-to-the-wind type of style has gotten him in trouble before. In fact, it stripped him of his featherweight championship in the WEC, as Mike Brown countered a wild elbow with a knockout shot.
A wild strike of that sort against a dangerous fighter like Menjivar could lead to Faber's second straight defeat and third loss in his last four fights.
This is how Faber avoids that scenario.
