Faber Loses Flyweight Belt By Knockout In 1st Round

The California Kid, Urijah Faber (21-1-0) lost his flyweight (145 lbs) title belt this evening to Mike Brown (19-4-0).

The TKO occured 2:23 seconds into the first round when Faber tried to catch Brown with a side reverse elbow to the head. The elbow glanced off Brown’s shoulder and Brown delivered a punch right on the button on Faber’s chin. Faber fell to the canvas and tried to defend himself into recovery, but Brown was relentless with bunches of punches.

Faber, a longtime fan favorite due to his exciting and creative style of fighting, held the WEC flyweight belt since March 2006.

This WEC (World Extreme Cagefighting) bout was carried free of charge on Versus. This is a great way for MMA (mixed martial arts) newbies to watch quality action and learn the sport without having to pay pay-per-view (PPV) charges.
