Former WEC Champion, UFC Hall of Famer, and current UFC Bantamweight apparently does not like what has been coming out of the mouths of Ruby Sports Management’s Daniel Rubenstein and UFC matchmaker Sean Shelby.
Word came out from Rubenstein and allegedly Shelby that Faber turned down a fight with Petr Yan, and that Faber has retired again. Faber addressed the issue via Instagram with a stern warning to both men to keep his name out of their mouths. Making sure to let Shelby know that UFC President Dana White knows his situation and he will deal with Dana only moving forward. Also, he hasn’t re-retired, and Yan isn’t the fight for him.
As far as the warning for Shelby, not sure what to make of it. I don’t recall any active fighter calling out Shelby or any other matchmaker in the UFC. Make sure you listen to exactly what Faber had to say to both men about feeding one another corndogs, a very unveiled reference if you catch the drift he was throwing.
Faber also let Petr Yan know what time it is in a tweet response to Yan back in August. Not sure where this is headed, however, one thing is clear, don’t run your mouth about Faber, he is more than happy to check you.
Young @PetrYanUFC is not wise enough to spell “Peter” correctly. Ur not the fight brotha, wish u were. “The father bull said to his son, we will walk down the hill to ‘see’ the all the cows. Not run to ‘see’ one”
