Ivan Menjivar: “It’s Not a Rematch for Me” (video)


Ivan Menjivar and Brad Pickett - WEC 53Ivan Menjivar and Urijah Faber have fought before, back in 2006. Faber won that fight because Menjivar was disqualified due to an illegal kick to a downed opponent.

Now, seven years later, Menjivar doesn’t even look at their UFC 157 bout as a rematch. For him, so much time has passed, they have both refined their games so much, that Menjivar sees this as a new fight against a new opponent.
