UFC SACRAMENTO: Hall of Famer Urijah Faber Scores Quickest KO Of His Career In Return To The Octagon

At 40-years-old, Hall of Famer Urijah Faber returned to the Octagon after a two-and-a-half year hiatus and came away with the fastest knockout of his career. Check out his highlight win over Ricky Simon.

Welcome back, Urijah Faber. Returning to the Octagon for the first time in two-and-a-half years, the "California Kid" — now 40 years old — looked better than ever.

Serving as the co-main event of UFC Sacramento (UFC on ESPN+ 13), Faber — the UFC Hall of Famer who helped pave the way for the 145-pound-and-under divisions — took on 26-year-old Ricky Simon. And he finished him in just 46 seconds with a crushing right hand to the head.

Check out the quick highlights:


It was the fastest knockout of his career and his first KO/TKO win since January 2007, when he beat Joe Pearson at WEC 25. It was his first win since December 2017, when he earned a unanimous decision over Brad Pickett.

With his win over the highly touted Simon, Faber is now a force to be reckoned with in the bantamweight division, and he already has his sights set on the current champion, Henry Cejudo. Following the fight, Faber addressed the current double champ after being called out by him in June.

“I think Henry Cejudo called me out a little bit ago. I heard Dana [White] say that I was old. I know Dana White was old when he was 40 but I’m a young man. Dana was old when he was 28. Come on, Dana. Look at me,” Faber said. "Henry, what's up, dog? I remember, ten years ago when you challenged me to a fight as a friendly gesture, and I'm down to get down and mix that up."
