Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, Fla., starting at 8 p.m. ET, live
on Versus. Fans can also win a chance at a one-on-one training session
with Faber, by going here.Faber is a California native, going
by the nickname ''The California Kid.'' He was a successful high school
wrestler and had collegiate career at the University of California at
Davis. He began his college wrestling career as a walk-on but quickly
earned a scholarship. He finished his career as the UC Davis all-time
win leader. INTERVIEWBuzzmaster: Urijah is running a bit late, everyone!Urijah Faber: Hi everyone, thanks for chiming in.------------------------------------------tre (washington): What's your training like when yo're preparing for a fight?Urijah Faber:
My lifestyle revolves around training. As long as I'm not doing
promotions, I'm in the gym training. I go shorter and harder the closer
I get to the fight--some harder sparring and more pitwork.------------------------------------------rodney (des moines IA): if you could see any two fighters fight... past or present who would it be?Urijah Faber: That's a hard question. I'd probably say Couture and Fedor, both in their primes.------------------------------------------Frank Martinez (Fontana, CA): Will you ever move to 155 and fight BJ Penn in the UFC?Urijah Faber:
I could possibly fight at 155. I wouldn't be able to put on too much
weight. I would be able to fight as a champ vs. champ fight, a one-time
deal, but nothing permanent.------------------------------------------Kevin (Virginia): Where do you get your motivation in the ring?Urijah Faber:
It's just what I enjoy doing. I've found a way to make a living doing
my favorite thing. I try to live my life doing something I want to
do--that's my motivation.------------------------------------------Aaron (Florida): What are you dressing up as for halloween?Urijah Faber: I already had one that I went to--I was Bam Bam, and my date was Pebbles. I'd post the pictures if I had them on me.------------------------------------------Jake Klipp (Milwaukee, WI):
How hard was it, coming from a wrestling background, to get out of some
of the "bad" wrestling habits, and turn those wrestling instincts into
an advantage?Urijah Faber:
It wasn't too difficult. My style of wrestling was suited to it anyhow.
I had a really good instructor, and it was a lot of trial and error at
the beginning. It was a problem at first, but not for long.------------------------------------------Ted (New Jersey): What's the key to your fight next weekend?Urijah Faber:
The key for me is using my speed. Brown is really well-rounded and
strong, but the biggest factor that will seperate the two of us would
be my speed. I feel I'm just as good, if not better, in every area.------------------------------------------Mike (CT): Any chance we'll see a fight between you and Miguel Torres?Urijah Faber:
It's very possible, but not really a plan right now. I could down to
35s, he could go up to 45s--there's a chance it could happen, yeah.------------------------------------------Philadelphia, PA: What kind of weight training do you do, and do you take any supplements? Urijah Faber:
I don't do any weight training. Mostly, I do reality-based
stuff--boxing, ju-jutsu, wrestling. I take a weight-gaining supplement
because I'm trying to keep my calories up without interrupting my
workout. It's made of peanut butter, soy milk, and bananas.------------------------------------------ (Fontana, CA): I think you are the best athlete in MMA right now. What would you say are your strengths and weaknesses (if any)? Urijah Faber:
Thank you. I wouldn't say it's a weakness, but I am small for my weight
class. I'm still trying to improve in every area. I understand that I
have to keep learning, so that's an advantage.------------------------------------------ Urijah Faber: Thanks for the questions, and I look forward to puitting on a great show for you. Check out! [please contact me for website address]
