Despite an initial retirement in 2017, Faber has returned to the UFC and fought again in 2019. After retiring in 2017, Urijah was inducted into the UFC Hall of Fame.

Career: After establishing a solid foundation of wrestling skills, Faber trained under Fábio “Pateta” Prado, earning a brown belt in Brazilian jiu-jitsu. He began his MMA career in the Gladiator Challenge promotion, defeating his first opponent with a guillotine choke in 2003. Further victories soon followed, but in 2005 he suffered his first defeat against Tyson Griffin. He finished off his time at Gladiator Challenge with a few more wins before moving to World Extreme Cagefighting.

His first WEC fight came in 2006, when he beat Cole Escovedo to win the WEC Featherweight Championship. He then returned to Gladiator Challenge in 2006 to reclaim the Bantamweight Championship, beating Naoya Uematsu.

Urijah bounced back with a victory against Raphael Assunção in 2009 before earning the right to fight José Aldo for the WEC Featherweight Championship in 2010. Unfortunately, Aldo defeated Urijah convincingly, overwhelming him with a barrage of strikes. He lasted the whole fight without being knocked out, but he was sent to the canvas on numerous occasions. He inevitably lost the fight via unanimous decision.

A number of additional title defenses came, although Faber struggled to beat Pulver before the fight went to the scorecards. He won with a unanimous decision, but cracks were beginning to show. Finally, Faber lost his title against Mike Brown in 2008. He then beat Jens Pulver once again in 2009 and asked for a rematch with Mike Brown. However Brown defeated him once again in 2009. Urijah broke his hand and dislocated his left thumb during the fight, which left him relying almost entirely on elbows and kicks. After the loss, Faber stated that he wanted another rematch with Brown.

Urijah’s UFC debut came against Eddie Wineland, who was a former WEC Bantamweight champion. Faber defeated Wineland in a hotly-contested fight that ended in a unanimous decision going Faber’s way. For many years, Dominick Cruz had been wanting to avenge his earlier loss against Urijah, and the rematch took place in 2011. Cruz was successful, winning the fight via a unanimous decision. However, Faber bounced back with a win against Brian Bowles, setting himself up for a potential title shot.

Following his defeat against Aldo, Faber decided to move to bantamweight. He fought Takeya Mizugaki in 2010, defeating the Japanese fighter with a rear-naked choke. This would prove to be the last WEC fight for Faber before the promotion was merged with the UFC. From 2010 onward, Faber fought under the UFC banner.
