UFC bantamweight Urijah Faber beat Michael McDonald decisivley in the co-main event of UFC on FOX 9 Saturday night. After coming up short in two title shots, "The California Kid" appears to be in place for a third one.
“Faber’s in this Vitor zone right now," said UFC president Dana White. "The older he gets, the better he gets. If you look at how good McDonald really is, and people were so excited for this fight, he literally shut Michael down the entire fight and finished him with a great performance.”
