Urijah Faber appeared on this past week’s edition of the MMA hour to discuss the UFC’s rankings and how important they are. Check out the highlights down below:
“The thing is, I’ve fought everyone, unless you want to start having me fight the same people. The rankings, they don’t mean crap, to be honest. These are the best fighters in the world and they’ve been invited to the game for a reason, so I take every single guy very, very seriously. I’m 120-percent expecting to win and hopefully walk through a guy, but you never know. Even Caceres, Caceres is ranked No. 12, and he was a tough fight.”
Faber (31-7 MMA, 6-3 UFC) has seven knockouts, 18 submissions and 5 decision victories, he has been knocked out three times in his MMA career. In his last four fights he is 3-1.
