Desription .........  Like so many of the great fighters in MMA, Urijah Faber was involved in athletics at a young age. Football, roller hockey, and wrestling were a part of Faber’s life early on – and if that sounds too clean cut, then you’ve never seen him take down an opponent, only to finish him quickly with a flurry of punches. After a successful career wrestling at UC Davis, Faber entered professional MMA in 2003, with a series of wins with the Gladiator Challenge, King of the Cage, and World Extreme Cagefighting (WEC) Competitions. Along the way he’s won the Gladiator Challenge Bantam Championship (three times), and the WEC Featherweight Championship, which he defended three times. Recent conquests include Jens Pulver, Jeff Curran, Chance Farrar, Dominic Cruz, and Joe Pearson.

Like other wrestlers competing in mixed martial arts, Faber has an advantage when it comes to takedowns and any action that occurs once the fight hits the mat. Yet Faber can dish out lightning fast punches, either standing up or grappling. He’s been known to wrap his legs in a scissor lock around his opponent’s head, then serve up some serious pound and ground to end the fight. Faber’s dynamic “enter the ring punching” approach along with a seriously outstanding record has brought tons of much deserved attention to the featherweight MMA class. Faber is widely considered one of the top featherweight martial artists fighting today. Faber has trained with B.J. Penn, and currently works with Andy Kay, Joe Urias, and Cassio Werneck, and fights with the Capital City Fighting Alliance.
