Urijah Faber, a once small town California native, is now known as one of the best MMA featherweights in the world. The "California Kid" trains with the Capital City Fighting Alliance. A once wrestling standout at the University of California-Davis, Faber is primarily known for his outstanding MMA wrestling skills. Faber's undisputed record and reign as the featherweight champion in the World Extreme Cagefighting (WEC) promotion came to an abrupt end after a first round TKO loss to Mike Brown in November 2008.
