Urijah Faber

UFC Fighter

1.) What has been your career highlight so far?

There have been a lot of good ones. Probably my first fight with Jens Pulver. It was the first time I fought a guy who I really looked up to as a fighter. It was an amazing five round war. I got to showcase my standup. It put me at a different level.

 

2.) What advice do you have for an aspiring MMA fighter?

Understand that it's a long process. It's not something that happens overnight. You have to put in years and years. Surround yourself with the right people because there will be a lot of bumps in the road.

 

3.) Who has been the toughest fighter you have faced? Why?

Jose Aldo. He is a guy who is an extremely talented athlete. He was a little bigger than me. He was kicking the crap out of my legs for over twenty minutes. I wasn't able to stop him. He was a guy who I felt was a serious opponent.

 

4.) What is something about being an MMA fighter that a casual fan wouldn't know about?

Understanding how important the diet is, and also the training we do. We train many different disciplines. It's not just going in there and fighting. We have to do specific practices for specific things. We train boxing, kickboxing, wrestling, jiu-jitsu.
