UFC announced on Tuesday afternoon that Former (WEC) World Extreme Cagefighting featherweight champion Urijah Faber will take on Brad Pickett in on UFC on Fox 22, the last Fox-televised UFC show of the year.
Faber will try to do his best as he is trying to break his current two-fight losing streak. Once one of the most feared “little guys” in the sport, “The California Kid” is coming off a decision loss to Jimmie Rivera at UFC 203 and has dropped three of his last four bouts overall, including a points loss to rival Dominick Cruz for the UFC’s bantamweight title.
As for Pickett, the U.K. slugger is has loss four of his last five bouts. “One Punch” was submitted via triangle choke in the first to the legs of Iuri Alcantara at UFC 204 earlier this month and a win over Faber is paramount.
UFC of Fox 22 will be headlined by popular crossover fighter Paige VanZant continuing her post-“Dancing with the Stars” stint by colliding with Michelle Waterson. Also set for the marquee will be Mickey Gall taking on Sage Northcutt while Alan Jouban will fight Mike Perry. Bryan Barberena will square off against Colby Covington.
UFC on Fox 22 will take place at Golden 1 Center in Sacramento, Calif. and will be televised live on both UFC Fight Pass and Fox.
Shawn Stewart is Host of The Shawn Stewart Show Tues-Thurs 6-8pm est on Sports 4 Fanz Radio.
