Faber Returns to Sacramento to Face Pickett

Two of the UFC's most revered veterans will square off on December 17, when Urijah Faber gets a home game in Sacramento to face Brad Pickett at Golden 1 Center.

The UFC Fight Night event, which is headlined by the strawweight bout between Paige VanZant and Michelle Waterson, will air live on FOX. Tickets go on sale on October 28.

Currently ranked seventh in the world in the bantamweight division, former WEC featherweight champion Faber is a pioneer for the lighter weight classes in MMA, but this December, he is intent on proving that he still has another title run left in him. The goal is similar for England's "One Punch" Pickett, and after going 1-1 thus far in 2016, he wants to end the year with a win in the backyard of "The California Kid."
