The ‘California’ Kid, Urijah Faber made his last walk to the octagon in his hometown of Sacramento this past Saturday.
The former WEC Featherweight Champion has cemented is name as a pioneer in the sport. Not only with his own career but as the founder of Team Alpha Male, he has also helped to develop the careers of others such as Cody Garbrandt and Paige VanZant.
“I wasn’t expecting that whole build up in the back there, doing like a, you know sharing special moments of my career and everything so I had to turn my back on that because I’m like, I’m getting ready to go fight, this dude’s getting ready to take my head off. I’m getting like choked up and everything, it was a little much for me” Urijah Faber said at the post fight press conference.
With his last fight being a unanimous decision over Brad Pickett, Urijah Faber now thinks about the future. “I have a ton of projects I’m working on”, He said. “I’ve learned a lot about people, business, about just life in general through this process”.
