Interview with MMA fighter Urijah Faber

Faber takes on Mike Brown Wednesday, Nov. 5, live from Seminole Hard 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.


INTERVIEW


Buzzmaster: 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 urijahfaber.com!
