OK this is not going to be a weekly segment. This is going to be written when I want to write it and when an ample amount of news comes in. If you are waiting at your computer for my update 1. Why? and 2. turn on notifications on twitter. Now on to sports talk.
Urijah Faber returns to UFC Octagon.
One of my favorite MMA personalities and fighters, Urijah Faber, is making his return to the octagon in July. He will be fighting Ricky Simon at UFC Fight Night Sacramento and it looks like it will be a competitive fight. Ricky Simon is a good Bantamweight Prospect who is 3-0 in the organization with wins over Merab Dvalishvili, Montel Jackson and Rani Yahya. Faber, who is now 40, has not fought since the last time the UFC came to Sacramento, he defeated Brad Pickett in that bout and now three years later he faces a fighter on a much different trajectory than Pickett was. Faber made short people like myself cool, as a result, I will always be rooting for “The California Kid”
