Fighters react to Urijah Faber's final fight in the UFC

BY Jonathan Bradley • December 17, 2016

UFC veteran Urijah Faber took the Octagon for the last time in his storied MMA career on Saturday and was able to walk away with a unanimous decision win over opponent Brad Pickett in front of a hometown crowd in Sacramento.

Faber is one of the most accomplished lighter weight fighters in the history of the sport, as he retires with the most wins, finishes and submissions in UFC bantamweight history.

During his nine-year career under the WEC and UFC banners, Faber fought in seven title fights. And while he never held a belt in the UFC, he engaged in some of the most memorable bouts in the company’s history.

Faber’s fellow fighters took to social media after his final fight to bid “The California Kid” farewell.
