Urijah Faber Speaks on His UFC 157 Win and Possibly Getting Another Title Shot
Posted by Jeffrey Harris on 02.24.2013



At the UFC 157 post-fight press conference, Urijah Faber talked about what is next after his impressive first round submission victory over Ivan Menjivar on the main PPV card and what is next for his career:

Faber on his getting many title shots: "It seems like all the drama in my life is from reporters asking me funny questions. But the reason I've had a lot of title shots is because I've been at the top of my weight class for 10 years now."

Faber on his maybe getting another title fight: "I know I'm barely away from having that belt. I lost to Barao, who's an incredible fighter. I broke my rib. He caught me with an amazing knee in the first round and broke my rib, and I didn't get to get crazy in there a little bit. I didn't get to get wild and open up a bit in there... I actually had an easier time doing what I wanted to against [Cruz] than Barao. I didn't know if it was the rib or what, but I'm ready for whatever."

Faber on his improvements: "I keep getting better and better. I get more comfortable with my standup. And it's true that our sport is getting tougher and tougher. You've got these young kids that are growing up and eating and breathing everything MMA. I feel like I was one of those trendsetters, that I was like that as a little kid myself before there was even a UFC. So it's great to see the new generation come in. But I'm right there and ready to do this."

Faber joking about people asking if he should soon retire: "I was joking about having gray hairs and knee surgeries and stuff like that because people were asking me dumb questions about retiring. Retiring? I feel great. I'm 33 years old and feel amazing."
