Cheers to a legend and pioneer of the lighter weight classes in this sport. He was a guy from an era where MMA was illegal in California and fought just because he was passionate about fighting. He had announced it before the fight and got to do it in his hometown of Sacramento against a WEC OG like him (thanks to Pickett for taking this). It was a vintage Faber peformance with some striking, scrambling and submission attempts which I've always appreciated about him as a wrestler; he always went for the finish. After the fight he finally ended the rivalry with arch enemy Dom Cruz on the fox broadcast which was a really good moment. Lastly why I think his retirement is one of the best is that Faber has invested his money and has mentioned that he has a lot of business ventures after. Hopefully he sticks around doing a few UFC jobs here and there.
