Urijah Faber fought in the bantamweight and featherweight divisions of the UFC and he held several championships for various promotions prior to signing on with the UFC. 

Faber started his professional MMA career in 2004  and managed to win and hold two titles for two separate promotions simultaneously. His first  title win  was  with the Gladiator Challenge promotion, winning the GC bantamweight championship in his third professional fight. He would defend this title several times before losing it to Tyson Griffin at GC42 in late 2005. His second title win came when Faber fought in the King of the Cage promotion, winning the vacant  bantamweight title in his sixth professional MMA fight. He would also defend the KOTC title several times before signing with WEC .

Faber won the WEC Featherweight Championship at WEC 19 on March 17, 2006, and held the title for over two years, defending it successfully five times before  losing it to Mike Brown at WEC 36 on November 5, 2008. Following his stint with the WEC, Faber signed with the UFC. He ha d his debut against Eddie Wineland at UFC 128, winning the bout by unanimous decision. Faber climbed through the ranks and managed to get title shots on two occasions, once against Renan Barao at UFC  169, losing by TKO, and then against Dominick Cruz at UFC 199, where he lost by unanimous decision.

Although he never tasted UFC gold, he had some memorable fights. Faber is widely regarded as one of the sport’s pioneers for establishing legitimacy to lighter weight classes in MMA.
