The day after his defeat to Jose Aldo, WEC star Urijah Faber discussed the fight, his injured leg and what the future holds for him with Carmichael Dave.
Here’s a few of his key thoughts from the interview.
On The Leg Kicks: “I did my best out there. I was in a lot of pain man to be honest with you,” he admits. “His leg kicks are deceiving man, it feels like I was getting hit with a bat. That’s the first time I’ve really been punished with those.”
On Not Quitting: “I could have probably copped out in the crucifix and just kind of lay there and let the ref stop it, but I just heard the crowd going and I could hear the countdown, you know the time and stuff like that, and I just wanted to give myself another chance.”
In A Possible Switch To Bantamweight: “You know I’m in no rush right now to decide what I’m going to do. There’s plenty of big fights for me out there. I don’t by any means want to try and be the 135lb champion right now – I’ve got my boy Joseph (Benavidez) down there. Let him run his course and see what happens. I’ve got a lot of fights, I just don’t know where I’m gonna go.”
