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.

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.
