UFC Bantamweight Urijah Faber

As expected, “The California Kid” Urijah Faber (pictured) will appear in the UFC’s return to Sacramento.

On Wednesday night, it was announced Faber will co-headline UFC on FOX 9 against Michael McDonald.

Faber has won four of his last five fights, including three straight. Interesting, Faber’s fought for a title five times in his last 13 outings.

The 34-year-old has lost every championship affair during that span.

McDonald, meanwhile, bounced back nicely from a submission loss to interim bantamweight champ Renan Barao by tapping out Brad Pickett in August. “Mayday” owns an impressive 16-2 professional record.

FOX will broadcast the main card live beginning at 8PM ET/5PM PT.

The December 14 event will likely take place inside Sleep Train Arena (formerly known as Arco Arena).
