Everyone Wish Urijah Faber’s Sister A Full Recovery

Some sad news out of California today, as it was recently reported that former WEC champion and current #1 bantamweight contender Urijah Faber‘s sister was in a car accident late Friday night and has had to undergo major surgery which has left her in a medically induced coma as a result. was the first to break the story:

Michaella Tastad, 19, was driving home Friday with a friend at 3 a.m. when she rear ended a vehicle slowing down near the site of a single-car accident, according to California Highway Patrol Officer David Martinez. A few minutes later, three more cars collided. Three people were taken to the hospital, but only Tastad suffered major injuries, Martinez said.

Faber said his sister received life-threatening head trauma and is in a medically induced coma at Sutter Roseville Medical Center. He said Tastad also has a collapsed lung, spleen damage and several other injuries. Part of Tastad’s skull was removed and she underwent a second surgery to insert a shunt to help drain fluid, Faber said.

On Monday, Faber said his family received their first good news when doctors briefly took his sister off medicine that induces the coma.

“She gave a peace sign and wiggled her toes,” Faber said. “Then they put her back under … We are done being scared and now it’s about having the recovery we all want.”

Definitely a silver lining for the Faber family, but why not head over to Urijah’s Twitter page and offer some kind words? It’s the holiday season, folks, so do your part to make sure Old Dad doesn’t fill your stocking with coal this year, that drunken crooner. Speaking of, have you donated toward Danny Jr.’s kidney transplant yet? If not, DO IT.

We here at CagePotato would like to wish Michaella the best of luck in her recovery, and we’re confident that anyone who shares a genetic proximity with a man who could not only go five rounds with two broken hands, but could live to tell this story will come through just fine.

All that being said, who's the Chinaman on the left?

If your eating "chipotle burritos" from taco bell, your are surely living on the cheap.
Go back and read my first post, I didn't chastise anybody.
Your fucked up.
Just like your screen name. I got a skin flute for you sweetie!
XENOPHON- December 1, 2011 at 10:29 pm
Hahaha Trolling for the weak minded is the best.
Take any overly sensitive issue, and flip it.
Hook, line, and sinker - the flounders take the bait.
Maybe one day we can all met at the upcoming CP fan club and sword fighters get together in Las Vegas.

First off, I want to say I applaud your creative posts. Me thinks you watched Full Metal Jacket one too many times.....or are living vicariously through your little Call of Duty fantasy world. Regardless, the bottom line is: YOUR MOUTH SHOOTS MORE SHIT THEN MY ASSHOLE AFTER I SLAY A CHEDDAR CHIPOTLE BURRITO FROM TACO SMELL. Your stories are about as believable as my chances are of banging Arianny. At least I get laid though. The only thing you've ever fucked is your own fist.....which is probably pretty small considering your hung like a baby mouse.

I didn't want to get into this but your bullshit stories about your wild ways and the way you chatiized everyone who commented about your insensitive comments really pissed me off. So on that note, have fun flipping burgers, cause we all know your really not in the army but just dream about sucking the shit ring off some guy in a uniform who just pushed your shit in.

FYI; I wouldn't piss on you if you were on fire

XENO, I guess you just got your copy of "Comebacks for 3rd Graders," huh? No one is impressed by your moral high horse bullshit. 'Save the drama' you say, after turning this thread into your own forum on personal responsibility. Go fuck yourself you sanctimonious prick.
XENOPHON- December 1, 2011 at 10:09 am
@Pen Fifteen
When you turn 16, come and talk to me.
It was an "A" and "B" conversation, "C" your way home.
Until then, save the drama.
XENOPHON- December 1, 2011 at 9:29 am
Its the same place as yours to have a "bloody opinion." If you don't like it, go bugger-off.

Do you really believe in "good wishes" from hundreds and thousands of miles away is actually make a change?
Its not that I don't care, I have no opinion. Big difference buckaroo. Why do you feel you have share how you care with complete strangers.
Maybe I should have said, "better her than any of us?"
Get it correct, no one bragged - not me. I was asked to share (called out publicly) - by your mate El Guapo - who then shrank and clammed up.
You believe that unless a person was there, in person, then they should have no opinion. Fact is - instead of being enamored by the picture of a 19 year old, I read the facts from the Highway Patrol report quoted in the article.
The accident was entirely her fault, and she caused harm to herself, her occupant, and most likely the last 3 cars that ran into her. Yet you all seem to want to issues her sorrow and sympathy.
If she was not thin, pretty, blond and white, but fat, not attractive, or latin, black with nappy-ass hair, or Middle Eastern...
...would you still feel so compelled to send some lame post on a obscure message board that few read.
I seriously doubt it. Instead of thinking for yourself, you jump on board with the masses, who also did not read what was written - but ran off with your emotions - just the the author of the article did.
Big Question for you Hobson, how do you equate me stating "better her than me"...
..and equate that with intentions over, as you said, "fucking junior high school girls?"
Please explain that perverted Freudian slip to this audience?

All the best to you and your family at this time Michaella, get well girl
AndyInflammatory- November 30, 2011 at 8:56 pm
well, I guess it's all been said to the trolls

best of luck pretty lady - hope you get well soon
jhobson- November 30, 2011 at 8:17 pm

What place of it is yours to even have a bloody opinion about another life like that. You were there right, nice congrats on surviving that while someone else is seriously injured. You don't care about her life, that's fine kid...don't comment, grow up. Who sit's there bragging about the kind of asinine things you are. Who the fuck cares what kind shit you've been in, or am I wrong, was this article about you. Take your dads dick out of your ass kid. Again unless you were there and saw it personally shut the fuck up about it. I don't understand why tiny dicks like you feel the need to commment like a douche about someone else's misery and tragedy. Please respond with some more dumb ass comments and try to insult me, honestly your not worth me even laughing at whatever comments the junior high school girl that you seem to enjoy fucking comes up for you. Go back to your hole in the ground Dorothy. No one here, especially Faber's family give a rat's ass about your little snide remarks, get a life. Later loser
Pen Fifteen- November 30, 2011 at 8:17 pm
Xeno, if El Guapo had as hyperactive an imagination as you do, I'm sure he could tell some killer stories. Every time you try to add to your own personal mythology, you increasingly sound less like the combination of Arnold Schwarzenegger/Rambo/Albert Einstein you seem to fancy yourself as and more like a less funny Kenny Powers. Anyone who was as awesome as you seem to think you are wouldn't have to expend all the effort you expend blowing yourself up to a site full of anonymous people.
Phizix- November 30, 2011 at 6:53 pm
This Xeno guys seems like a dick..
XENOPHON- November 30, 2011 at 6:21 pm
So you going to pick the one item least clear, and dwell on that after sticking your nose into being half a hero for a day. So be it.
A hole in ones head, from doctors drill or a piece of rusted rebar is still a hole. So call me a liar. You still have avoided sharing your great adventures. So you call someone out, then go silent. Nice, just like a chick.
And get it straight, the doctors drilled the hole, and placed her into the coma. So, her head doesn't swell and crush her brain.
Seen and known plenty that have the same induced coma. Been through a windshield twice, my self. Once from the drivers seat, once from the outside in. Like I said from the get go,
"...better her than me!"
Get it now asshole? I did it to my self, she did it to herself.
El Guapo- November 30, 2011 at 5:55 pm
So you haven't been in a medically induced coma or had a part of your skull removed, huh? When you said you've been in her shoes I thought you were speaking the truth. Neeeeevermind then, that'll teach me to believe your bullshit stories.
Carry on bashing the young lady in a coma, liar.
XENOPHON- November 30, 2011 at 5:28 pm
@El Guapo
Never had the extreme of another person boring a in my head, but crashed many a times on motorcycles - cars - SUV's - humvees - parachutes - fast boats - and your mommas black knight skateboard with clay wheels to name a few.
Once on a Honda 600 two stroke (in between my first and second enlistment) down the street from a whore house in Cabo San Lucas a few before Christmas - I went head on with a VW Bus driven my two drunk beaners who drove into my lane - head on at 2 am.
No helmut, went through the windshield (head and elbow first), and tore out their drivers side upright windshield bar - the one that holds the left hand on mirror with my soon to be dislocated shoulder and several other broken bones.

Picked up the bike like the one armed boxer, rode it up the 2nd floor stairs to my villa (near Squid Row) one handed (ohhh poor xeno, he had a broken hand like poor faber and kept on trucking) and hid that fucking bike I borrowed so the Federal-es wouldn't confiscate it - as I was sure they would follow the blood tracks 3 blocks. Silly me, beaner cops from Mexico don't investigate much.
If it makes any difference my head and face landed on 1/4 inch rebar that was sticking straight up out of the ground about 3 free high- from some yet to be built - ridiculous arch meant for crossing the road. And yes, loaded up and on my way out of town I ran into and knocked over the unfinished arch on the other side of the road. So feel free to turn me in for destroying the public works project for a sovereign nation - you rat bastard.
I drank Mexican moonshine for the first 48 hours as I did my best at remembering the field manual for trauma medic, and then popped all the narcotic pills I could find at the corner pharmacia, and drank more moonshine for the 2nd 48 hours as I drove the thousands of miles back into the US.
That's one of my partial stories, tell me one of yours tough guy - El Gaupo.
Hey El Gaupo, You ever been shot...opps forgot you never been in the military or a simple gun fight have you? Have you ever even been in street brawl - oopps forgot, you type your posts from your day-time desk job.
Unless you've done, been in, or got something better or similar than that - fuck off you big pussy. If not you best to stick to your UFC fan club, the soft and springy mat, and the safety-first rules.
XENOPHON- November 30, 2011 at 4:47 pm
Sure taquito, I saw the facebook picture too...but that photo was obviously during the day, and from the passenger side of who's ever car she is riding in.
19 years old, at 3 am, speeding and unable to stop...with massive head (coma sized massive) collapsed lung, and spleen damage says she wasn't.
Nor does it indicate that the car she was in have air-bags smart guy. $100 dollars says that she slammed into the steering and front windshield, unless after she crashed she was impacted by secondary vehicles on the drivers door side.
And Danga, what the fuck is up with the Sargent Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band trumpeting at the end the article. Give me a break.
This chick is a coma with a drian-pipe sticking out of her fucking head. And you write some pansy-ass bullshit like this:
"...and we’re confident that anyone who shares a genetic proximity with a man who could not only go five rounds with two broken hands, but could live to tell this story will come through just fine...."
You didn't even rate with the "D-", that's just a FAIL.
El Guapo- November 30, 2011 at 4:40 pm
Congrats on your recovery, Xeno! It's nothing short of miraculous you've "been in her shoes before" and lived to tell about it. So how exactly did you find yourself in a medically induced coma with life threatening head trauma, anyway? I'd imagine it's a crazy story, needing to have part of your skull removed to relieve brain swelling and all. Congrats again, lloking forward to the story. Simply amazing.
Fried Taco- November 30, 2011 at 3:14 pm
I'm pretty sure she does wear her seatbelt.
XENOPHON- November 30, 2011 at 3:01 pm
Why don't each of you light-hearted wannabee tough guys - take a look at some of the military personnel being evacuated out of the sand box - or in recovery from Walter Reed?
So she has a bump on her head and a achy belly. I wonder who's belly aches more, hers or yours?
Be sure to make this woman a special fund-raiser T-shirt too! You can do a special expose on Michaella Tastad and the Miller kid. Two for the price of one, just like Dana does all the time.
Absent MistaMook79As, as if any of you fuckers know Faber's sister or met her face-to-face. If it was you, my neighbor, or my own brother who apparently may have not had seat belt buckled, and caused who caused her own fucking crash...I'd say the same fucking thing.
Been in her shoes before, and don't want to go through it again.
So on that note, better her than me. What do any of you who don't want to fuck her, feel like trading shoes with her. Of course not. If any of you cock suckers feel different, then by all mean feel free to trade places with 19 year Michaella Tastad.
Here is her Facebook page, why don't you fuckos friend her directly.
And the next time your 19 year is driving with her head up her ass and collides with cars already involved in a major collision - fuck your kids too for talking to shit to me.
And since your all so hot-to-trot about writing articles about, or commenting on "Sacramento Rules", the accident happened in Sacramento.
Think about it, if she couldn't remember to abide by the simpletons 3 second rule for maintaining the proper distance to the vehicle in front of that was clearly reported to already be in the process of slowing down, then fuck you and and your misplaced sympathies.

At 19 she is a fucking adult, and she caused her own crash. She is one lucky chick that she didn't kill anyone else - or she would but up for manslaughter. And I bet if that was the case, you would lump her into the Joe Son, or all the other fighters that catch felonies.
I'd bet money if that was the case, you wishy-washy fucks would be saying that she deserved it..and out to be ass-fucked in prison by the guards. or some other stupid shit that you post here.
MistaMook79- November 30, 2011 at 2:19 pm
Damn, that SUCKS! I hope she makes a full and speedy recovery. Having said that, you assholes disrespecting Faber by saying you would "fuck" his little sister who is presently in a coma should be glad you can hide behind a keyboard. Because I know personally, I would smash your nerdy fucking head in if you disrespected my sister like that. That is, if you weren't hiding behind a computer saying things you would ONLY say on a computer.
JoAnna- November 30, 2011 at 2:09 pm
Xenophon states "better her than me". Now that's what you call a self-centered idiot. Even though PEN FIFTEEN is intelligent enought to call it as it is. Just to provoke. Left Boob Telligman is just horny and probably never gets past the left boob.

I hope she makes a full recovery.
Left_Boob_Telligman- November 30, 2011 at 12:55 pm
I'd fuck the one in the middle, but the chick on the right is a little butch.

Hope she gets well soon. Damn, she's so young..
