Faber To VanZant Haters — ‘Win some fights and quit complaining’

March 12, 2015 11:31 am by BJPENN.COM News

“The truth is this, when some people talk about the ‘it’ factor, some people have it, some people don’t. But the bottom line is, you have to win fights in this sport. People can complain and have chips on their shoulder all they want about whether they’re getting the publicity or not.”

“We’ve got a girl named Paige VanZant who is getting a lot of notoriety because she’s a beautiful girl and she’s savvy when it comes to interviews. But she went out there, kicked butt, and scored the first knockout for that weight class.”

“If you look at the organization that has a beautiful girl that just knocked some girl out, and she’s only 20 years old. So she has 10-20 years to go depending on how long she wants to spend in the sport. Quit complaining!”

“I’ve been in the same situation where people are saying that they’re giving me some sort of ‘special treatment’ because I’m more marketable or whatever, and I’m like ‘this is my 40th fight. I’ve set some records, and I’ve tied some records with guys like Anderson Silva. I’ve won championships and I’ve lost championships.”

In a new interview with Bloodyelbow.com, Team Alpha Male founder Urijah Faber talked about his female star, Paige VanZant.
