Faber injured in UFC 149 main event | UFC NEWS

Urijah Faber came up short in his fight against Renan Barao on Saturday night. UFC 149 was his second attempt at the UFC Bantamweight Championship. His opponent Barao was quicker, cleaner, and smarter in their five round fight.

At some point in the opening rounds Renan caught Urijah with a knee to the body that appeared to take some of the wind out of his sails. Shortly after the fight Faber spoke with Sherdog.com and opened up about what happened.

“I was a little shaken up. He got me with a knee either in the first round or early in the second,” said Faber. “I think I have a broken rib. I ate like three or four solid leg kicks, but it will be fine in three or four days. I just wasn’t as squirrely out there [as I would have liked to have been].”

Faber also mentioned to many media outlets that he didn’t know when and if he would get another title shot, but if he did it would again be at bantamweight.
