The \u201cCalifornia Kid\u201d Isn\u2019t Done With MMA Just Yet! It\u2019s pretty much official that the former WEC featherweight champion and UFC legend Urijah Faber (34-10) will step back into the Octagon sometime soon. But, who against? We\u2019re not entirely sure but in an interview with former UFC welterweight Dan Hardy, he did mention how Conor McGregor keeps pushing him to fight UFC star T.J. Dillashaw (16-4). However, it\u2019s a matchup that won\u2019t happen anytime soon, after Dillashaw was suspended for two years after failing a drug test\u2026 But Faber was asked why he\u2019s back fighting now and his response was as below: \u201cFirst off, I\u2019ve been itching to fight, like just people have been pissing me off throughout retirement a little bit just in different ways here and there. And the reason I retired in the first place was purely because I wanted to. I just felt like it\u201d. He explained that he had exhausted his title run and had lost two fights back to back for the first time ever in his career. But, his last fight came in his hometown of Sacramento, California when he defeated Brad Pickett and decided to retire. Now, Faber didn\u2019t quit because he thought he wasn\u2019t good enough despite his lackluster performances but he stopped just because he wanted to. He just needed a break. But Urijah Faber believes he can still compete seeing today\u2019s landscape, so he\u2019s decided to do so as he still trains just as hard even out of retirement. But he\u2019s got a lot of motivation to fight again because it would help cement his legacy and the money would help with his other projects which include entertainment, real estate, and opening several gyms. Faber explained how McGregor was a part of his decision to return... \u201cConor McGregor and I talk on occasion. And he\u2019s always clawing at me like \u2018go get that snake, go get that weasel, jump out and surprise him now that he\u2019s got caught cheating,\u2019\u2026 you know how Conor is,\u201d Faber said. But, Faber talked about leading by example and teaching the other fighters in his camp to keep doing the little things that work. He explained that some fighters reach a certain level and they don\u2019t want to do the grimy stuff that has worked before for them to get them there but it\u2019s important\u2026 \u201cLeading by example is another thing that I think is a good reminder for these guys, \u2018like look guys, I took a couple years off, never got out of shape, I\u2019m going to come in, put a hard camp of focus like I\u2019m saying that we should, and I\u2019m going to get a big \u2018W\u2019 and sneak back in there\u201d. Fans will be excited to hear of Urijah Faber\u2019s return to the octagon and we\u2019re all hoping for an awesome matchup for the legend. But, as always we\u2019ll keep you in the loop regarding any further updates on the fight.
