Highly touted lightweight prospect Urijah Faber has signed a multi-fight deal with The World Fighting Alliance.
“I actually signed with the WFA and will be fighting for them early next year or at the end of this year,” exclaimed Faber. “I just have some fights that I have to get out of the way; I have one that’s scheduled in King of the Cage for October 28th in Reno [Nevada] and one that’s a tentative date down the road.”
Faber also stated that he received offers from plenty of other big shows but the money just wasn’t right.
“I’ve gotten offers from a lot of big shows, but I’m making good money for a lightweight fighter fighting in the shows like I did this weekend,” admitted Urijah. “They offered me really good money compared to what the UFC does. I know it’s really important to get the big exposure but I feel like I’m making a pretty good name for myself. I’m ready to step in there; I just want to be compensated for it.”
