Urijah Faber was always talented enough to contend for titles but not enough to win it.
The proud owner of Team Alpha Male has requested a UFC comeback fight a little bit after turning 40 years old. Can the multiple time title contender still hang?
Faber has been hinting a potential comeback on social media but none has been confirmed that time. However, he told former UFC title contender and current commentator Dan Hardy that he "just accepted a fight."
It looks like his request appears to have been granted.
What prompted Faber to want to make a UFC comeback?"I know my baby is keeping me young… but a good ole fist fight could help the cause,” Faber said.
He seems to look at UFC Sacramento on July 13 to be the perfect date. Sacramento is Faber’s hometown which is probably why the UFC did not hesitate to grant his wish.
If you follow Faber on his social media accounts, it can be seen that he is still in the same shape as he was during his active career.
The rust is a mere UFC octagon difference and nothing on his physical or mental conditioning. The talent is already given.
Now more inspired with the birth of his baby girl, he feels more energized than before.There is also that huge "what if" after failing on four occasions to capture a UFC title.
What should we expect for Faber's comeback fight?
Since Dillashaw is currently serving a two-year suspension for testing positive for the banned substance EPO, that fight will not happen anytime soon.
Whom Faber will face in his return bout and the date have yet to be confirmed, but it is sure that the UFC Hall of Famer is headed back to the Octagon.
