Faber rips McGregor: He gives up
For his next fight, Urijah Faber is returning to the featherweight division and a win over Frankie Edgar could put him right back in title content. Faber recently joined 'The Fighter and The Kid' podcast and talked about he feels he matches up with some of the divisions best, including outspoken Conor McGregor: "I wouldn't mind fighting Conor. I'll tell you what - he's got something that a lot of guys don't have. Something a guy like me doesn't have, a guy like Chad Mendes doesn't have, a guy like Frankie Edgar has, and that's the instincts and willingness to give up when he's about to get knee barred. I wouldn't give up. Come on...His knee was in danger of having some pain inflicted on it and he was like, 'I'm out.'"
