The UFC Hall of Fame has announced its first inductee for the Class of 2017, which is Modern Era Candidate, Urijah Faber.
Faber, “The California Kid” was one of the first major draws in Mixed Martial Arts. A champion in King of the Cage, Faber would move to World Extreme Cagefighting and would win the promotion’s Featherweight and later the Bantamweight Championship. Once WEC merged with the UFC, he would immediately challenge for titles there.
Faber would not win any championships in UFC, but would put forth stellar matches against Dominick Cruz, Brian Bowels and Michael McDonald. Faber currently holds the record for the most wins in the UFC Bantamweight division and is retiring with a MMA record of 34 and 10.
There will be more members of the UFC announced in the upcoming weeks.
We here at Notinhalloffame.com would like to congratulate Urijah Faber for achieving this honor.
