    Default Despite history, UFC Fight Night 26 winners Faber and McDonald open to matchup

    "It's been fun to watch the kid grow up and we've always had a pretty good relationship," said Faber, a longtime Sacramento, following the event.

    You might think that kind of relationship would nix a fight, or at least delay it until the stakes are bigger. Not so for Faber, whose like for the 22-year-old MacDonald won't keep him from getting into the cage.

    "I definitely think it's a fight that will probably happen," Faber said. "I don't make the matchups ... but I don't want to be getting hit with any three-piece combos from this kid. It's definitely going to be a battle if it ever happens."

    MacDonald, who lives in nearby Modesto, also seemed comfortable with the prospect when he addressed a potential fight.

    "To me, this sport isn't about having to hate people," he said. "Brad is a good friend of mine, one of the good people you meet. There's a few people you meet in this sport that are just good guys – Urijah's a good guy. He's been a friend of mine for a long time. Since my very first fight I've known him.

    "If it happens, it happens. Just like what happened with me and Brad Pickett. We touch gloves, and we beat the crap out of each other, (and) hopefully make some money. This is our job, and let's do it. Whenever the time calls for it."

    An impressed UFC President Dana White then interjected, "See that? That's how it works."

    White, of course, is no stranger to teammates who don't want to fight each other. But he's often had to grapple with fighters who don't want to compete because of current or previous relationships. Hearing Faber and MacDonald's comments was music to his ears.

    Reading McDonald's quotes here and watching him fight, how can you not be impressed by that kid? Can't believe he's only 22.
