– The UFC announced tonight that Urijah Faber is the first name official for the 2017 UFC Hall of Fame. Faber had the following to say about the honor…

“It’s nice to be recognized and it’s nice for folks to take time to acknowledge what I’ve done in the sport because I honestly haven’t had much time to do that myself. I went straight from retirement into business and mentoring and all the other projects I have. So this is a reminder to see that I’ve done some cool things and people are appreciative, so it is nice.”
