Urijah Faber Discusses Women Fighting in the UFC, Not Being Done With MMA Yet
Posted by Larry Csonka on 02.21.2013



- Urijah Faber recently spoke about this weekend's fight with Ivan Menjivar. Here are the highlights…

Is He Close to Retiring?: "Nah, I'm far from being done," he said. "My toughest fights have been decision fights with guys like Jose Aldo, Dominick Cruz, Renan Barao – and with facing adversity. I feel great. I feel amazing."

On The Women Main Eventing The PPV: "I think it's pretty cool," Faber said. "This is definitely a historic event with two women in the main event for the first time ever in the UFC. You have an Olympic athlete and a military vet. It's a lot of the same storylines that you've seen throughput the history of our sport. It's good to see the women step in and do it big."

On Rematching Menjivar: "I feel like it's definitely a fight that needed to happen again because it wasn't finished the right way," he said. "It was stopped by the doctor, and an illegal kick was thrown. [The cut] wasn't caused by the illegal kick, but it was thrown, and there was a cut that wouldn't allow the fight to continue. It was seven years ago. I'm not a guy who lives in the past ever, but I'm always looking forward to a good fight. And I think this will be a great one."

On Looking For a Title Shot: "I'm always thinking about a title shot," he said. "This is a sport that I've been in for 10 years, and I've always been at the top of my weight class. That's a testament to being athletic guy, being constant, persistent and always changing with the times. ... I'm just going to make the most of it and have fun with it."
