Urijah Faber exacted some revenge on Ricky Simon, whether or not he is aware of it.
Tyson Nam caught up with Fightful following his knockout win over Jerome Rivera at UFC Vegas 11. Nam detailed how Simon once pulled a fast one over Faber.
"Ricky Simon was fighting. We were inside of those training rooms. It was pre-COVID so everyone had to share a training room. Urijah Faber comes in — this was before their fight," Nam shared. "He was running around trying to find a restroom. I guess he had to go really bad."
"Ricky goes, 'Go out the door, around the corner and keep on following it. You'll find a bathroom.' We've never even been down that hallway so we didn't even know where Urijah got led to," he laughed. "He actually followed Ricky's directions so we dipped out the other way, let's go, let's go."
Faber and Simon eventually met on July 13, 2019 at a UFC Fight Night event in Sacremento. It was a battle between a rising prospect and a legend out-of-retirement. "The California Kid" made an emphatic return by stopping Simon via strikes at 0:46 of round one.
