By FCF Staff
Sacramento’s Urijah Faber has been booked for the UFC’s next card in the California city, as the bantamweight contender will take on fellow vet, Brad Pickett.
The UFC recently announced that the fight will be part of UFC on FOX 22, which will take place on December 17th at the Golden 1 Center.
Faber (33-10) is coming off consecutive defeats for the first time in his career, as the former WEC champ has been decisioned by Dominick Cruz and Jimmie Rivera in his last two bouts.
Pickett (25-12), meanwhile, was submitted by Iuri Alcantara in his last bout, and has gone 1-4 in his last 5.
