TORONTO - Canadian Ivan (Pride of El Salvador) Menjivar will fight Urijah (The California Kid) Faber on Feb. 23 at UFC 157 at the Honda Center in Anaheim, Calif.

The two met in 2006 at a TKO event in Laval, Que., with Faber winning after Menjivar was disqualified for an illegal kick to a downed opponent.

Faber (26-6) went on to become WEC featherweight champion before dropping down to bantamweight.

Montreal's Menjivar (25-9) is coming off a submission win over Azamat Gashimov at UFC 154 in Montreal.
