Medical Science Heals Urijah Faber’s Hand, Second-Graders Heal His Soul

As part of his ongoing attempt to Twitter the shit out of his recovery from a broken hand suffered in the WEC title fight with Mike Brown, former featherweight champ Urijah Faber recently posted pictures of his brand new working hand.  No more sickeningly crooked bones for “The California Kid.”  Now it’s just a few stitches and some painful memories.  Thanks, science. 

But lest his spirits get down after the decision loss followed by surgery and physical therapy, he got a ‘Get Well’ card from Mrs. Hilsabeck’s second-grade class.  Sweet, right?  But to the kid who wrote “You are the best!” right there in the middle – you just refuse to accept the updated rankings, don’t you?  Nothing but a bunch of nuthuggers in Mrs. Hilsabeck’s class.


Must Urijah Faber Be So Laid Back In Every Situation?

Apparently it wasn’t enough for Urijah Faber to post X-rays of his broken right hand on Twitter after his loss to Mike Brown at WEC 41.  Now he’s also chronicling his journey into surgery to have it fixed, while calmly wondering if he may have broken the left hand, too.  Because wouldn’t that just be a kick in the balls?  Clearly, nothing bums this guy out that much.  Which is probably how you have to be in order to live the life of a pro fighter.  Post-fight surgery is just part of the deal.  Of course, so are post-fight groupies, so maybe it all evens out in the end.
