Urijah Faber renews UFC contract

Former WEC featherweight champion and MMA veteran Urijah Faber is not ready to hang up the gloves again just yet. The ‘California Kid’ signed a new UFC deal after suffering a vicious beatdown at the hands of top contender Petr Yan and is eager to call out some of bantamweight’s best athletes.

“I told Dana I don’t want the temptation from all the other companies when I return from retirement. So we renegotiated the contract. I still have some fights left, but it doesn’t necessarily mean I’ll do one of them. We’ll see what opportunities come up. I’ll stay in shape, go to the gym and have fun.”
