Urijah Faber will hang up the gloves to his prestigious MMA career at UFC on Fox 22 in Sacramento. Bowing out of the sport in his hometown, Faber will meet British fighter Brad ‘One Punch’ Pickett in his final showdown inside the Octagon.
With an incredible 43 fights to his name, no athlete has won as many times as the California kid at bantamweight. Rising to prominence in WEC, the Californian native became the promotions featherweight champion, holding the strap for two years, including a title defense over current bantamweight champion #DominickCruz.
Urijah Faber has competed in the upper echelons of every division that he’s been a part of in a career that has spanned over a decade. Now, ahead of his forty fourth fight, the 37-year-old feels its time to focus his energy elsewhere.
Pickett will look to play the bad guy for the first time in his career, hoping to ruin Urijah Faber’s storybook ending by knocking him out in his hometown. The crafty veteran and hard-hitter Pickett will look to bounce back from his defeat to #Alcantara at #UFC204.
UFC Sacramento takes place on December 17 at the Golden 1 Centre, Sacramento, California. Headlined by Paige VanZant vs. Michelle Waterson, the card also features #SageNorthcutt as he faces #MickeyGall. It's gonna be good.
