Video: Urijah Faber Shaves His Head in Support of Ailing Sister

(Props: UrijahFaber0com)

The California Kid has done the unthinkable. As a show of solidarity for his sister Michaella — who had to lose her own long hair to undergo brain surgery after that awful car accident — Urijah Faber has shaved off his trademark surfer-mop. Will he keep the high-and-tight look for his upcoming coaching gig on TUF 15? And sure, I’ll bid $20 for one of those Urijah Faber hair clumps. My financial advisor tells me it’s a good investment.

Come on, i didn't even crack a smile. Is that all you got dog?

@Xeno Unfortunately, it looks like he tried to do both. Fail.

Xeno, please do the gene pool a favor and kill yourself.
XENOPHON- December 23, 2011 at 1:51 pm
Did Faber shave his head for his sister, or for a photo shoot opportunity? Weak sauce attempt...sounds like Greg Jackson had influence!

Ok, i'll try your pistol thing. Should I put some bullets into it first? After that, let me get in line with the others here who want to shot some of that jizz down your ninja throat before strangling you.

@ SnackDaddy Totally, man. That's horrible stuff. None of my little peeves with the Komeback-Kid have any bearing on the razor's edge that guy may be walking right now. Best of everything to him and his family. Especially his little cutey sis. Get better, kiddo.

He does seem to have 'grown up' a bit. That probably has the most to do with me liking him more. Oh, also because I hated his hair.
SnackDaddy- December 23, 2011 at 12:56 pm
Man it's gotta suck to be Urijah right now. Best of luck and speedy recovery to his sister. Nice gesture.

I think maybe realizing that life is cheap, and experiencing his sisters fragile state - may have some minor felt, long impact.
Didn't think about it until you mentioned it, but yes a marketing make-over is another good observation. Maybe instead of the Kalifornia Kid, he will become the Komeback Kid...

xeno, please, put a pistol into your mouth tilt your head forward and blow that shit to pieces. Did anyone else get the feel that karma is a complete tool from watching his fight and he was dressed like some sort of turd excreted from david bowie's loose asshole.

You are the man!
Both in and out of the octagon.
I've been a fan as long as you've been around, wish there were people like you as a role model when I was younger, missed my calling. Too old now, just an old broken down vet, I'm 63.
I commend you for shaving your hair off in support of your sister.
I did the same for a friend a long time ago when she lost her's from cancer treatments.Mine was a lot longer. Actually she cut it, she was fortunate to be well enough.
It grows back. Mine did, but a little thinning on top.
My very best to your sister for a complete and speedy recovery.
I got your 6 and always pitching for you.
You do a lot of good for so many.

@Xeno - I just saw your reply to me about driving overseas in the maynard/aldo article and responded, if you're still interested.
macreadysshack- December 23, 2011 at 9:05 am
Argh. I wish he'd done it with just a single close friend or relative and done it where his sister could at least see him doing it. That would've made it real for me. At the very least they should've left out that model-esque mean mugging crap.
macreadysshack- December 23, 2011 at 9:02 am
Damn it, Xeno. Everything was going fine until that last paragraph. Who may have needed solidarity but didn't . . . ?
I have never been a fan but he has grown on me since his loses.
Shaving his head seems like it's more of just a bit of silliness than an act of 'solidarity' with his sister. He looks 10x better without that ridiculous mop and he needs some re-invention as a fighter and a marketable product right now, too.
XENOPHON- December 23, 2011 at 8:40 am
I think his is a likeable guy who is usually coherent and simply happy during his interviews. When in the cage he demonstrates a pizazz for fighting...with a tinge of showboating based on his athleticism.
I was shocked that he started dropping some fights...its not like the man doesn't stay active of know how to defend. Most shocking was the damage he received from Aldo. I think he has realized now what it's like to absorbed damage - a little different than always handing it out..
Possibly that's the root of the humbling more than you have witnessed of the past year or two..
A most unfortunate and costly lesson learned from Kimo. Even Masvidal acquiesced without needing any solidarity. It was time for the Goldilocks, pig tails, and corn rows to disappear.

I used to abso-fucking-lutely hate Faber when he was in the WEC. I don't know, I think it was b/c he acted and came off as that guy who thought he was untouchable and the hottest shit ever. Then Mike Brown came along, then Aldo came along. I think some of his loses kind of humbled him in a way, not sure. Anyone else feel this way?
Either way he's grown on me and I've become a fan (not that he needs me as a fan, just saying). Nice to see him supporting his sister!

Much respect to Urijah for supporting his sister
skeletor- December 23, 2011 at 7:31 am
Good. I like fiber buy I find it hard to root for any white guy with corn rows with the exception of Kenny fucking powers.

What a sweet thing to do for his sister.
No way in hell I'm watching the video though.
