Faber submits Jorgensen in fourth after tough back and forth fight

 

Like it or not, Urijah Faber is right back in UFC title contention.

Faber collected his second win of the year on Saturday, submitting Scott Jorgensen in the fourth round of their bantamweight fight at "The Ultimate Fighter" 17 finale inside The Mandalay Bay Events Center.

He is now 7-0 since 2008 in non-title fights. In that same stretch, he's 0-5 when a title is at stake, losing to Renan Barao, Dominick Cruz, Jose Aldo and twice to Mike Brown.

"I just want to fight the best," said Faber, when asked what he'd like next. "Whatever [the UFC] wants me to do."

He looked very impressive. Comes ready, fights hard, fights hurt and fights the best. Hard not to like the guy.I look forward to him fighting again.

No matter what anyone says Faber is one tough S.O.B. He fought Brown with no freaking hands for over two rounds and was still competitive. Great fight against Jorgensen. Faber's combos are too sick and he was better on the ground as well.

It's funny because we used to call your mom a midget. Right before the entire group made her chug litres of throat yogurt. Yep, every Thursday.

Faber's footwork and feints this fight reminded me of Cruz a little bit for some reason. At any rate, I think being under the tutelage of Ludwig will continue to be an asset for faber. Good fight by both guys.
