UFC on ESPN+ 13 weigh-in faceoff: Returning Urijah Faber gets hero's welcome
SACRAMENTO, Calif. – UFC Hall of Famer Urijah Faber is still as popular as ever if the reaction at Friday’s UFC on ESPN+ 13 ceremonial weigh-ins is anything to go by.
Faber (34-10 MMA, 10-6 UFC), the former WEC champion and longtime fan favorite, comes out retirement on Saturday for a bantamweight matchup with Ricky Simon (15-1 MMA, 3-0 UFC) in his hometown of Sacramento, Calif. He hasn’t competed since December 2016, but clearly “The California Kid” still has some fanfare on his side, because the crowd was excited to see him.
Watch the video above as Faber appears at UFC on ESPN+ 13 ceremonial weigh-ins for a staredown with Simon.
