Urijah Faber is seriously considering ending his retirement, and rising bantamweight Manny Bermudez is hoping to be the fighter who faces the legend in his Octagon return.

Faber hung up the gloves in 2016, but more recently the 40-year-old fighter’s reported he’s thinking about fighting again. Recently the 24-year-old Bermudez spoke with MMA Junkie, and while doing so, he relayed the following about Faber:

“I’ve watched him since I was a kid,” Bermudez said . “And to potentially go from watching him fight on TV as a kid with no idea on how to fight, to be standing across the cage with him would be a definite career/life highlight for me.”

“I’m a young, up-and-coming guy; he’s a legend in the sport, however this fight went would be a big win for either one of us. For me, the reasons it would be big are obvious, but for him, if he wanted to retire and he won, it would be against an undefeated up-and-comer with 12 finishes in 14 pro fights. I’m a submission guy, and he’s never been submitted.”

In his last bout, this past February, Bermudez (14-0) submitted Benito Lopez  with first round, guillotine choke.
