UFC 245 Yan vs Faber: You Cannot Teach Old Dog New Tricks!

Yan vs Faber has epic fight time written all over it! Peter "no mercy" Yan is a Bantamweight menace to every fighter in the weight category. Urijah Faber a true UFC legend at age 40 came back from retirement and it was not the best idea that the "California Kid" had in recent months.

Yan vs Faber 1st Round Old Dog Teaching The Puppy How To Dance

Yan vs Faber was a great fight from the beginning. Faber was well aware of his stamina limitations needed to start punishing "no mercy" Yan as early as possible and possibly finish the fight in the first round.

Sadly for Faber, it was not the case.

Yan was very patiently waiting and conserving all the energy. Faber was trying to kick high and low swing left and right but rarely hit anything else than air.

Yan was reading the game and learning the Faber's dance moves.

The first run went in favor of Yan no doubt about that.

Yan vs Faber 2nd Round: Lot's Of Pain & No Gain 4 Faver

Yan has learned how to dance with Faber and it didn't take him too long before he started to seriously punish Faber's eccentric behavior.

Faber's lack of head protection turned out to be his demise.

Yan struck like a cobra when he caught Faber off guard and making grimaces late in the second round.

Yan's 3 precise head strikes caused devastating damage to Faber. Faber clearly stunned hit the ground and tried his best not to get more punishment from Yan who didn't worry about any submission but rather kept hammering Faber.

The ref had to stop the fight late in the 4th round and stop Faber's bleeding. It was a bloody mess.

Ref's stoppage may have felt like salvation for a bit for Faber who was clearly running out of steam and was severally hurt.

Faber barely survived the 2nd round.

3rd Round No Mercy and Quick Finish

Yan knew that he had the upper hand and did not want to risk any surprises and unexpected swings and bites that can easily surprise and hurt anybody fighting a wounded dod.

Yan finished the fight only 42 seconds in the 3rd round with a missed knee that he perfectly transitioned into a high kick. Faber could not defend against the unexpected kick transition. The kick landed on Faber's chin and took all the balance from his legs...

The ref was the one who showed mercy to Faber and finished this ass-whooping one-man show!

Check out what happened in the preliminary card fights (Heinisch vs Akhmedov, Brown vs Saunders, Vieira vs Aldana) and stay tuned for more UFC action!
