Sidelined since June after breaking two bones in his right hand during a bout with current WEC Featherweight Champion Mike Brown, the forecast appears to be clear for “The California Kid” to begin working his way back up to title-contendership.

The good news was confirmed by none other than Urijah Faber himself through his Twitter account.

According to Faber, who stopped by his doctor’s office before hopping on a plane in support of Fight Night participant Justin Buchholz, he’s been cleared to start working with a punching bag and expects to be fully ready to return by January of 2010.
