Urijah Faber Biography
Who is he?
Urijah Christopher Faber is an Isla Vista, California-born American mixed martial artist, best known for being the winner of the WEC Featherweight Championship title in 2006 and holding onto it for two consecutive years. Born on 14 May 1979, Urijah has Dutch,(father) and Italian, English and Irish (mother) ancestry. He has been active in the field of mixed martial arts since 2003.
What is his net worth?
One of the domineering faces in mixed martial arts, how wealthy is Urijah Faber? As of late 2017, Faber has amassed an estimated net worth of $10 million. Obviously, most of his net worth has been accumulated from his successful career in this dangerous sport, where he enjoyed his relative dominance, including from the prize money that he has won over time as a bantamweight and featherweight champion fighter.
What was his early life?
Faber was raised in Lincoln, California, was educated at Lincoln High School, and then graduated with a degree in Human Development from the University of California at Davis, from where he reached the NCAA wrestling tournament twice. He found himself inclined towards martial arts while he was in his twenties, but before starting his career in that field in 2003, he was already a brown belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. Given his enthusiasm and passion for martial arts, Faber decided on making a career in his favourite sport, which certainly helped him raise his wealth to millions of dollars.
How did Urijah Faber started his career?
He started his professional career with a win in the Gladiator Challenge in 2003, taking this win to a higher level as he began playing in King of the Cage (KOTC), his debut in which earned him the title of King of the Cage Bantamweight Championship. His winning spree in mixed martial arts in the bantamweight division made him a pioneering personality in promoting lighter weight championships. Eventually, Faber fought in “World Extreme Cage-fighting”, and the skills and techniques that he took with him from the starting point of his career helped him strike a win in the WEC Featherweight Championship in 2006. After he won this reputable title, he held on to it for the next two years, defeating major mixed martial artists including Joe Pearson and Dominique Crux and others. Noted for his “guillotine choke”, Faber became a popular face in the sport, finding fame as a bantamweight and featherweight champion. These title wins not only helped Faber to become a celebrity, they have also helped his net worth to rise.
After more than two years of title wins, he lost it to Mike Brown in 2008. Following his defeat, Faber decided to play at bantamweight, having 20 more fights at that weight. In 2013, Faber was awarded “2013 Submission of the Year” for his impeccable fighting techniques. He finally retired in 2016 with a win-loss record of 34-10, winning both the KOTC and GC Bantanweight titles along the way.
Not only MMA
Apart from fighting, Faber’s first book “The Laws of the Ring” was published in 2012. He is also noted for being the founder of the gym “Team Alpha Male”, which won Combat Press award for “Gym of the Year” in 2014. No doubt these activities have added to his net worth.
What is his girlfriend and personal life?
As for his personal life, Urijah is rumoured to have been dating Kristi Randel, but officially remains single. He is an active philanthropist who carries out his charity works under his co-founded organization, Grace Project. He is still based in southern California.
