According to Urijah Faber himself, the UFC has really messed something up pertaining to his upcoming fight with Frankie Edgar.
On Tuesdays night of Stud Show Radio, Faber and co-host Justin Buchholz called in from Manila to check in on the guys. While on the phone Faber said that the UFC stuck him and Edgar in hotel rooms right next to each other.
“You guys aren’t going to believe this. They’ve got me and Frankie – they’ve got us right next to each other. Like we can open our doors, in the hotel, and we’re like touching hands. He’s like two feet away from my door. Yeah they don’t have Burt [Watson], where’s Burt man.”
Obviously, Faber is referring to the absence of long time ‘Babysitter to the stars’ Burt Watson, who is no longer with the company. What do you guys think, isn’t it a little weird to be in the room right next to the guy your going to fight in a few days. You would think the UFC would have been able to avoid such an obvious mistake.
