Urijah Faber wants to return to the UFC octagon

The Hall of Fame member of UFC, Urijah Faber, retired in 2016 and took two fights in 2019, making it clear that he was still holding out at forty. The first won and lost the second. Since then he has not returned to the octagon. It is also not confirmed that he will do so soon, although he could retire again waiting for an interesting future opportunity, or say goodbye definitively to mixed martial arts. Anyway, it is worth mentioning that you have an interest in a particular contest. Thus, his hope is to beat Pedro Munhoz.

The latter is number five in the bantamweight division and is not at his best right now as he lost on his last visit to the Octagon to Aljamain Sterling. He also has an interest in facing the “California Kid”. Clearly there will be a wait to find out what they think of the UFCSo they may have another fight in mind for both of them. Because, in addition, although Faber He is an MMA legend, right now he is not in the top 15. At the moment, he said something about it.

“I would fight Pedro just because I like Pedro. I prefer to fight people for whom I have a little respect and who are upper class types. That is a fight he would take because he politely asked for it, “the renowned fighter began by saying. But, he also made it clear that the match would not take place soon due to the recent birth of his son: “He is due to be born in October so he would have to wait until after the baby.”

‘The California Kid’ was not fighting twenty-four months ago and returned to the Octagon with its quality intact. The fighter of UFC, forty years old, won last year by technical knock out against Ricky Simon, whom he managed to take down in forty-eight seconds after the start of the first round. The nightly co-star fight took one of the most impressive moments of the week at Fight Night Sacramento, where it was a clear demonstration that, even after spending more than two years idle, he had everything he always showed.

After this victory, the American fighter made it clear that he wants to have at least the opportunity to approach the title, which belonged to Henry Cejudo. The latter retired, so Petr Yan stayed with him, destroying José Aldo. At his age, it would be quite an achievement to be able to get a championship, even more with the excellent youth that is being presented in this competition. However, that does not seem to be a problem for him and he dreams of achieving it.
