In this Fightography, the legendary leader of the Lion’s Den gives his side of the story of the UFC’s original grudge match.

Urijah Faber last stepped in the Octagon in July, which means he’s had ample opportunities to start new businesses.

Faber is a prolific businessman. He owns a gym, is a partial owner in his management company and owns a construction firm in Sacramento. Recently, he has become an investor in MemoryTag, a device that allows users to add personalized videos to greeting cards and other places. Just use your phone and scan a QR card, and your video plays.

Faber is also an investor in a new concept for specialty dental care. They’re hoping to branch out across the country. And he’s playing a small role in the ownership group that is attempting to bring a Major League Soccer franchise to Sacramento. Faber loves Sacramento, and he is constantly looking for things to help build it. When the city nearly lost the Kings, Faber realized the loss would’ve left a major hole in the city’s culture.

“What that would have meant is a lot less to cheer for, which I don’t like. MLS means more to cheer for. That’s why I got behind it,” Faber said during a Tuesday phone interview.

Faber’s first love, of course, is still mixed martial arts. He still owns Urijah Faber’s Ultimate Fitness, the home of UFC bantamweight champion T.J. Dillashaw. Things have changed over the past year at Ultimate Fitness, for Faber and others. Gone is Duane Ludwig, the renowned striking coach who guided Dillashaw to Team Alpha Male’s first title belt. In his place is Martin Kampmann, the former UFC veteran who, according to Faber, fits the team’s ethos like a glove.

“First off, he’s a great guy. He’s got a really cool family. He understands the big picture of working for the team,” Faber said.

This may or not be a shot at Ludwig, who has since moved to Colorado and is in the process of opening his own gym. Things between Faber and Ludwig are icy, but Ludwig is still involved with many of Team Alpha Male’s fighters. He still serves as Dillashaw‘s main coach. He guided Chad Mendes to his recent title fight against Jose Aldo, and he’ll be in the corner of Joseph Benavidez this weekend in Austin.

Faber will step in the Octagon in a few weeks when he faces Cisco Rivera at UFC 181. Surprisingly, he is once again on the preliminary card, bolstering a Fox Sports 1 card that is designed to entice viewers at home to buy the pay-per-view. Rivera is Faber’s second straight curious opponent in a row; he is ranked 11th in the division and seemingly out of Faber’s league in both fighting and marketability.

But Faber said he’s never picked his opponents.

“First off, I’ve never turned down a fight. They tell me who I fight. We don’t have a discussion about it. They say who I am fighting, and I accept,” he said.

And Faber believes Rivera, like other competitors in his division, has plenty to offer.

“I take all of these guys really seriously. If he’s in the UFC, and has been knocking guys out, I take that seriously,” he said. “I know for a fact he’s got some danger. I know he is a peer. And so I think it’s an exciting fight.”

A name Faber will always be associated with is Dominick Cruz, who returned from years on the shelf with a dominant knockout win over Takeya Mizugaki. Despite their history of bad blood, Faber said that he was impressed with Cruz’s performance and that the former bantamweight champion showed something he’s lacked for most of his career: a killer instinct.

“He looked good. It’s the first time we’ve seen him go for the kill. I think that’s one of the things that has been missing from his game, the urgency to finish a fight,” Faber said. “It might have been the emotions. He was like a chained-up animal that was finally unleashed.

“I hope he keeps those emotions just long enough to get knocked out by T.J. Dillashaw.”

Cruz and Dillashaw will meet on an undetermined date in the future. Faber has split wins with Cruz, and he would like to face his nemesis at some point in the future. It is not something that has to happen for Faber to feel complete; he does not feel like he has unfinished business with anyone. But still, he wants the fight.

“I’m not a guy that feels like I have anything to do, but of course I’d like to fight him,” he said. “If I’m going to be fighting, that fight needs to happen.”

UFC Fight Night 57 on Saturday will be headlined by former lightweight champion Frankie Edgar and former WEC contender Cub Swanson. Both men will be looking to earn a rematch with 145-pound titleholder Jose Aldo by winning this weekend.

He’s only appeared twice since his first bout with Aldo, but Edgar gave the Brazilian champion one of his more competitive contests. With a win over former 155-pound titleholder BJ Penn in his latest outing, Edgar has reinserted himself into the featherweight title-shot conversation, so a win over a surging Swanson could be enough to earn a second crack at Aldo.

Steamrolled in his original meeting with Aldo, Swanson has had a much longer road back to a rematch with the 145-pound king. With six consecutive victories, it’s becoming hard to deny him, though. 

In addition to Edgar and Swanson, UFC title contenders in multiple other divisions will also appear at UFC Fight Night 57. Here is a look at betting odds, via OddsShark.com, and predictions for all the main card matchups.

The opening round of The Ultimate Fighter season 20 is over and the quarterfinals kicked off Wednesday night with a matchup between Felice Herrig and Randa Markos. The fight was a true grappler vs. striker matchup, and featured the most impressive finish of the season thus far. 

Things started as one would expect, with Herrig looking to pepper Markos with punches, and Markos attempting to neutralize Herrig with clinchwork. The strategy backfired, however, as Herrig used her formidable Muay Thai skills to land short, powerful elbows and knees against the cage.

Herrig, surprisingly, took Markos down and briefly worked in half-guard. Markos would get back up, however, and dragged Herrig down with a head-and-arm throw. From there, she isolated Herrig‘s arm with her legs as though she was moving to a mounted-crucifix position. Instead, however, she used the position to set up a strange, modified, straight armbar to get the tap just minutes into the first round. Check out the highlights here to see the crafty submission.

The win moves Markos into the semi-finals, where she will face the winner of Joanne Calderwood vs. Rose Namajunas.

Matchup Results/Notes

Carla Esparza vs. Tecia Torres  
Aisling Daly vs. Jessica Penne Next Week

Notes and Observations

  • After eight episodes of serenity, the fun times are over for Team Pettis. A great deal of the episode was dedicated to a rift in the team forming over the awkwardness of training alongside opponents (seven of the eight quarterfinalists are from Team Pettis). A tentative agreement to split up practice was broken by Randa Markos, drawing a great deal of ire from Felice Herrig and Carla Esparza. Esparza‘s attitude and belligerence were panned thoroughly on Twitter during the show’s airing.
  • While much of this episode was dedicated to drama in The House, the real story is Markos’ incredible rise up the division. Markos was largely unknown entering the season, but she has knocked off one of the top picks to become champ in Tecia Torres, and one of the best-known fighters in Felice Herrig
  • Last week, Angela Magana led a crusade to force Tecia Torres and Heather Clark out of the shared Team Melendez room. Torres and Clark made the move, and all parties will hopefully sleep easier (which, fingers crossed, will result in less petty drama). 
  • Following the fight, Markos walked over to the rest of Team Pettis and flatly said “maybe that will shut her up?” Stone cold!
  • The coaches’ challenge was this week! Rather than an athletic challenge, Gilbert Melendez and Anthony Pettis competed in UFC trivia. Melendez, for the most part, dominated the challenge, winning his team $1,500 apiece.
  • On Fox Sports Live’s “TUF Talk” segment, Markos and Esparza got very, very catty with one another. You can check out the extra-long segment here. If both of these ladies fall short of the finals, look for them to get paired off in the grudge match of the season.
  • Next week, Aisling Daly faces off with Jessica Penne. The episode will also function as an infomercial for Harley Davidson (can we all discuss how silly it is that the UFC actively encourages its fighters to ride motorcycles when we’ve seen multiple champions injured biking?) and will feature an appearance by Conor McGregor, who will cheer on Daly.

Frankie Edgar is no stranger to high-stakes fights.

Over the past four years, the fighting pride of Toms River, New Jersey, has been scrapping it out with the best lightweight and featherweight fighters under the UFC banner, and he has consistently done so as either champion or challenger. And while he’s experienced success and setbacks alike during this stretch, The Answer has further solidified his reputation as one of the most resilient and doggedly determined fighters to ever step inside the Octagon for his willingness to lay it all on the line each and every time out.

Yet, no matter how memorable the performance or how lofty past accomplishments may seem, Edgar’s ultimate goal is to become a champion once again. That said, Edgar is currently in a holding pattern in the 145-pound weight class.

Having faced featherweight king Jose Aldo three fights back, Edgar still has some ground to make up before earning another shot at the title. This makes his upcoming bout with Cub Swanson at Fight Night 57 all the more critical. The 29-year-old Palms Springs native carved his way up the featherweight ranks on the strength of a six-fight winning streak in pursuit of his first shot at the 145-pound crown, which UFC President Dana White confirmed he will get with a victory over Edgar.

The Jackson/Winkeljohn-trained knockout artist will bring two years’ worth of momentum into their main event tilt on Saturday night in Austin, Texas, but that’s precisely what led Edgar to set his sights on Swanson in the first place. The resurgent contender recognizes and respects the work the former WEC veteran has done to earn his current position, but Edgar is also fully aware of what could come with a victory over the unorthodox striker.

Edgar is on the hunt to get back to a title shot, and he sees derailing Swanson as his way of jumping to the front of the line at 145 pounds. 

“In my mind, this is the most important fight of my career,” Edgar told Bleacher Report. “That’s how every fight should be. I believe you’re really only as good as your last fight, and I know I need a win here to get to my goal of being a champion again. That means everything to me.”

In addition to the bout between Swanson and Edgar carrying future title implications, the dynamics of their respective styles have fight fans eager to see the action get underway. Swanson has proven knockout power in his hands, feet and knees that he can utilize from unconventional angles, and Edgar has a movement-heavy attack that he built to accompany his solid wrestling skills.

And while Swanson is undoubtedly dangerous from the opening bell to the last, Edgar believes he knows where his biggest opportunities will materialize. He’s forged a legacy out of his ability to shift gears on the fly, and he believes his ability to do so will make all the difference on Saturday night.  

“Cub [Swanson] brings a lot to the table,” Edgar said. “He’s unpredictable and has a lot of power, but while that unpredictability is one of his strengths, it also leaves some openings. I think this fight could really hit every single aspect of MMA. The whole point of doing what we do is to be a complete mixed martial arts fighter, and I think fans are going to see the better mixed martial arts fighter win.

“You try to prepare for those things, but it’s hard to find someone to emulate that type of style. It’s more along the lines of pressure under fire and making the adjustments when they happen. And I think I do that better than most people.

“I have the ability to adjust under fire, and some of that comes with experience and some comes naturally, but I really have to give it up to my coaches. They are great at seeing things as they happen and know what adjustments to tell me. I have such a good rhythm with my coaches that I can hear what they are saying and make the necessary adjustments on the fly. There are definitely going to be some dangerous spots, but there are going to be opportunities there as well.”
