Urijah Faber

In the co-main event of UFC 199, Dominick Cruz and Urijah Faber had their highly anticipated trilogy fight for the UFC bantamweight championship. Cruz dominated the fight from the first bell, scoring numerous takedowns, and rocking Faber several times throughout the course of the fight.

Following the fight, Faber was noncommittal about his fighting future, revealing that he competes to be the best, and if he isn’t the best, he needs to think about his future.

Now, in a new interview with MMAFighting, Faber gave fans an update on his fighting future:

“No, I’m not gonna retire,” Faber told MMA Fighting on Friday at an appearance at CrossFit South Bay. “[Joe] Rogan asked me the hard questions and I do this to be the best. I feel like [at age] 37 [was] one of the best training camps I’ve had, period. It was amazing.”

“I know I’m right there at the top,” Faber said. “I don’t know what’s next necessarily. I’m gonna chill for a bit. But I’m definitely not done done.”
