The December 17th event will go down in Sacramento, California, which is the bantamweight contender’s hometown.
The 37 year-old Faber (33-10) is coming off decision losses to champion Dominick Cruz, and most recently, rising 135’er Jimmie Rivera.
The 38 year-old Pickett, on the other hand, was submitted by Iuri Alcantara in his last bout. The defeat was the British fighter’s fourth in his last five bouts.
So, stylistically speaking, that’s definitely a must see fight. A strawweight bout between Paige VanZant and Michelle Waterson will headline UFC on FOX 22.
