Urijah Faber Set to Return at UFC Sacramento Against Ricky Simon
“The California Kid” Urijah Faber
has been hinting at a return for quite some time now, and he is
indeed ending his retirement after two-and-a-half years away.
According to the Wrestling Observer's Dave Meltzer, the Ultimate
Fighting Championship Hall of Famer will return at UFC Sacramento
to take on Ricky
Faber hasn’t fought since December 2016 where he beat Brad
Pickett by unanimous decision, in Sacramento. The win ended his
two-fight losing streak, which came at the hands of Jimmie
Rivera and Dominick
Cruz. Over his career, the 40-year-old has beaten the likes of
Assuncao, and Jens Pulver
Simon, meanwhile, is riding a eight-fight winning streak and is
coming off of a very impressive win over Rani Yahya at
UFC 234. He also has wins over Montel
Jackson and Merab
Dvalishvili among others.
UFC Sacramento goes down on July 13 at the Golden 1 Center. The
card does not currently have a headliner.
