Urijah Faber Cleared, Back Working At The Gym

Urijah Faber has been cleared and is ready to resume intense training, as he looks to make a return in early 2013.

“Rib finally cleared, only took 4 months,” Faber posted on Twitter recently. “About 2 put in a full intense day!”

Faber suffered the injury during a loss to Renan Barao for the interim UFC bantamweight title. Since joining the UFC from the WEC, “The California Kid” has gone 2-2.

Faber (26-6) is a former WEC champion and was a coach on The Ultimate Fighter opposite Dominick Cruz during the first – and to date, only – live season of the show on FX earlier this year.
