I understand the business side of it though; he's the best unknown guy in all of the UFC, so it'd be a hard sell until he gets a fight on the main card against a bigger name fighter.
I'm not familiar with him but think he'd be a more interesting choice than Faber. Dana's going to play it safe, apparently; I guess that's the best business decision even if it's not the most intriguing match up for the fans.
