McDonald mocks Faber's cornrows in hilarious pre-fight text exchange
Yeah, Urijah Faber got the last laugh. But there's no doubt Michael McDonald got in the first jab. Except it wasn't public until now.
On Sunday, Faber posted a hilarious pre-fight group text exchange between the two UFC fighters on Twitter mocking the former WEC champion's trademark cornrows. And no, it wasn't written by MMA Roasted
A UFC staffer sent a text to a handful of fighters Saturday night before UFC on FOX, telling them to meet at 2 p.m. for transportation from the event hotel to Sleep Train Arena in Sacramento. Faber responded that he was still getting his hair done, sending a picture of his meticulous cornrows being put in.
McDonald responded with a similar picture with his shirtless brother hovering over him, with his hands on McDonald's nearly shaved head.
"Me too," texted McDonald, who lost to Faber via second-round guillotine submission Saturday night. "I don't know if that's enough time."
Chad Mendes absolutely loved it, typing "haha" until his fingers likely started to bleed. It was more damage than he took later in the day against Nik Lentz.
Faber was a good sport about it, texting back: "Tell ur brother to put some pants on!"
