Who wins between Petr Yan and Urijah Faber?

I’ll go with Yan by TKO in the 2nd round. I think we might be questioning if it’s an early stoppage but I think Faber has just been through too much and is too old at this point. He’s had a great run but everything ends at some point. He might be able to summon up the magic one more time and get the win, but I think it’s more likely that he’ll lose and question whether he wants to continue or not.

Urijah Faber was able to turn back the clock earlier this year with his quick win over Ricky Simon. Petr Yan is a fair step up in competition but I think Faber will be able to continue his run and come away with a decision win.

Yan is currently on an eight bout win streak and will be looking to keep that winning streak going, Faber on the other hand is on a one bout win streak since his return to the Octagon at UFC Fight Night 155. If Faber uses his experience he could come away with the victory but Yan is up and coming and will have other ideas. Faber via submission.

Urijah Faber?! Hahahaha. Petr Yan is going to cremate Urijah, Yan is too fast for Urijah and hopefully too disciplined to get caught with a random shot. Uriah needs to give it up, just like Aldo. 2020 needs new blood and Pete Yan is one that will lead that new school with a brutal knockout victory of the once sensational California Kid.
