Urijah Faber says he has accepted a bout for an Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) return.

Faber retired following a unanimous decision victory over Brad Pickett back in Dec. 2016. “The California Kid” was later inducted into the UFC Hall of Fame. Despite ending his last run on a high note, Faber is set for a return to mixed martial arts competition.

“Looking at today’s landscape, I just know that I can compete easily. I’ve stayed in great shape. It sounds like fun and the reason I stopped is because I wanted to. The reason I’m coming back is I have decided I want to… I just accepted a fight yesterday, I don’t know if that’s supposed to be put out yet.”
