Who is Urijah Faber?
Born as Urijah Christopher Faber, on the 14th May 1979 in Isla Vista, California USA, he is a retired mixed martial artist, who came to prominence in the mid- 2000s when he held the WEC Featherweight Championship title for almost two years, between 2006 and 2008. He was inducted into the UFC Hall of Fame following his retirement in 2017.
Early Life, Siblings, and Education
Of Dutch, Italian, English, and Irish ancestry, Urijah is the middle child born to Suzanne and Theo Faber. He grew up in Lincoln with his older brother Ryan and younger sister Michaela Tastad. He matriculated from Lincoln High School, upon which he enrolled at the University of California at Davis, acquiring a bachelor’s degree in Human Development. During his time at UC-Davis, Urijah was wrestling for the university team, and participated in the NCAA tournaments in 2001 and 2002.
Rise to Prominence and Decline
As his skills improved, Urijah was now ready for the next level, and as a result he joined World Extreme Cage-fighting, making his debut on the 17th March 2006 against Cole Escovedo, which was at the same time a title match and he became the new WEC Featherweight Champion. He held the title until the 5th November 2008, when he lost it to Mike Brown, only his second career defeat, having defended his title five times, defeating fighters as Joe Pearson, Dominick Cruz, Chance Farrar, Jeff Curran, and Jens Pulver.
He scheduled another fight with Brown in June 2009, but Faber was again defeated, this time by a unanimous decision. He took some time to recover from damage caused by Brown, before returning to ring in January 2010, defeating Raphael Assunção. He then scheduled a fight against José Aldo for the WEC Featherweight Championship on April 24, 2010, at WEC 48, but again suffered defeat.

Bantamweight, UFC, and Retirement
After a couple of lost matches in the featherweight category, Urijah moved to bantamweight and in his first fight defeated Japanese fighter Takeya Mizugaki, which earned him Submission of the Night honors.
As WEC merged with the UFC, Urijah officially became a part of the UFC and continued to fight in Bantamweight category. He had mixed success but lost in title matches, including several shots at the UFC Bantamweight title, but losing to Dominic Cruz, and then to Renan Barão. His last fight was held on the 17th December 2016, in which he defeated Brad Picket, following which Faber announced his retirement. During his career that lasted 13 years, Urijah accomplished a record of 34 wins and 10 lost matches.
