    Former WEC featherweight champion and MMA veteran Urijah Faber is not ready to hang up the gloves again just yet. The ‘California Kid’ signed a new UFC deal after suffering a vicious beatdown at the hands of top contender Petr Yan and is eager to call out some of bantamweight’s best athletes.

    In an interview with Ag Fight, Faber revealed that the new contract will ensure that he remains with the UFC until the end of his career, but Urijah is not sure yet when he will exactly make his return.

    He is 40 now and wants to wait 2 more years for Dillashaws suspension to be over.

    I'm surprised he lasted as long as he did. Never been a big fan but much respect

    Yan is gonna be a problem for alot of people. I can't see a obvious path to beating him like you can with most fighters. Hopefully he batters cejudo

    Dillashaw and Faber could headline a Bellator PPV in a few years

    Dillashaw would beat him, Faber is a killer of those below the top 5 but hasn't won against elite opposition in donkey's years

    I doubt there'll be much difference personally. It's a good first fight back though, shake off the rust against a low risk opponent :)
