Iuri Alcantara wants rematch with Urijah Faber following quick stoppage in Berlin

Jared Wickerham

Following his lightning quick victory against Vaughan Lee in Berlin, Iuri Alcantara revealed that he wants Urijah Faber in his next octagon outing.

While a title shot is his ultimate objective, Iuri Alcantara is interested in a rematch against Urijah Faber beforehand.

The Brazilian bantamweight earned a swift KO victory over Vaughan Lee on the preliminary portion of the UFC Fight Night: Munoz vs. Mousasi card. It was an impressive way to make a statement, as Alcantara needed no more than 25 seconds to land the overhand left to the temple and finish the fight with follow-up punches.

With the win over Lee, Alcantara moves to 30-5 (1) in his professional career, and 5-2 (1) in the UFC. The No. 7 ranked fighter in the bantamweight division is eyeing a potential title shot, but when asked after the fight who he would like to face in the immediate future, he responded simply with "Faber."

Through a translator, Alcantara also stated that he would also be prepared to take on the division's new champion, T.J. Dillashaw, in his next fight if that is what the UFC requested.

Faber is currently booked to face Alex Caceres at UFC 175 and had already defeated the Brazilian last August via unanimous decision. The fight was mostly a lopsided affair, and it is tough to see this rematch happening in the near future.
