For the first time in forever (God, my kid’s been making me watch “Frozen” with him far too much), MMA superstar Urijah Faber (pictured) is performing in the prelims of a fight card. He’s facing Alex Caceres in the “featured prelim” at UFC 175, if that’s any consolation…
The bright side for Faber is that with a victory, he’ll still be one of the highest paid players in the lineup.
The July 5 event takes place inside Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Middleweight champion Chris Weidman defends his throne against Lyoto Machida in the night’s showcase fight. Bantamweight queen Ronda Rousey battles Alexis Davis in the co-main event.
