UFC Hall of Famer Urijah Faber has agreed to come out of retirement to fight Ricky Simon in his hometown of Sacramento, California on July 13. It will be a three-round bantamweight contest.

Faber (34-10) retired from the sport following a unanimous decision win over Brad Pickett in December of 2016. “The California Kid” is a former WEC featherweight champion that holds notable victories over the likes of Dominick Cruz, Jens Pulver (x2), Raphael Assuncao, and Michael McDonald.

Simon (15-1) is currently riding an 8-fight win streak, most recently defeating Rani Yahya at UFC 234 in February. He holds an Octagon record of 3-0 since joining the UFC in April of last year.
