UFC 157 Results: Faber impressive in 1st Round submission of Menjivar

 

Menjivar remained active off of his back, forcing Faber to stand and eat a couple of upkicks, but Faber did not relent, diving through an upkick and continuing to hammer away with the elbows.

Menjivar kept moving, and eventually regained his feet, but as he did, Faber jumped on his back, securing a figure-four body lock. Staying glued to Menjivar’s back, Faber sunk the rear naked choke, causing Menjivar to tap out while standing.

“California is my spot man, so happy to get a win here for you guys,” said Faber after the fight, before giving much respect to his opponent.
