Urijah Faber to return in A1 Combat 21
Urijah Faber

The MMA world is abuzz with excitement as Urijah Faber, the seasoned former WEC champion, gears up for his long-awaited comeback. Making headlines once again, Faber is set to headline his very own promotional event, A1 Combat 21, on May 25th, marking his return to the cage after more than four years.

With the spotlight firmly on him, Faber, at 44 years young, is poised to showcase his skills at the Visalia Convention Center in California. While his opponent for the main event is yet to be determined, the anticipation surrounding Faber's return is palpable.

Faber's last bout dates back to December 2019, when he faced former bantamweight champion Petr Yan at UFC 245, ending in a knockout loss. However, the UFC Hall of Famer hasn't let that setback deter him. In the intervening years, Faber has tested his mettle in various arenas, participating in an open national wrestling tournament and even engaging in a jiu-jitsu match. Yet, the allure of the cage has drawn him back.

During his hiatus, Faber hasn't been idle. His relentless pursuit of excellence was evident in his 46-second TKO victory over Ricky Simon in July 2019, a match that marked his return from a two-and-a-half-year retirement. Now, fueled by the desire to reclaim past glory, Faber is ready to reignite the fire within.

As the countdown to A1 Combat 21 begins, fans eagerly await the announcement of Faber's opponent, knowing that regardless of who stands across the cage, they are in for a spectacle.
