Video: Urijah Faber Again Alludes To The Possibility Of Retiring From MMA

At the UFC 199 post-fight press conference held late Saturday evening, “The California Kid” Urijah Faber again alluded to the possibility of retirement.

During the press conference, which you can watch above, Faber talks about his second loss in three fights with UFC Bantamweight Champion Dominick Cruz and where he stands now as a result.

“I didn’t think fatigue was an issue, but I got caught a couple times and got outclassed in the fight,” Faber said of their fight, which served as the UFC 199 pay-per-view co-main event on Saturday night at The Forum in Inglewood, California. “I don’t like that. I’m fighting a great fighter, but for me to get outclassed, I gotta assess things.”

Faber continued, “I’m not going to rush into any decisions,” he said. “I know we’ve got the new arena coming up in Sacramento, that’s something I’m aware of, you know, that’s kind of a a dream come true to be in there. That’s something to think about as well.

“I love this sport, I love what I do, I love fighting and combat and I love to train hard, but I want to be at my best.”
