Urijah Faber's Mom Stops Burglary With Pellet Gun

I know that's probably not a headline you expected to read today. But in the wacky world of MMA, sometimes the truth is stranger than fiction. UFC bantamweight Urijah Faber sent out a birthday tweet to him mom, and included a pretty amusing story as well. The lady he waves says hi to before every fight is apparently not a woman you want to mess with. Here's what he had to say:

Happy B-day to my beautiful mom Suzanne today. Still feisty, just caught a burgler w a pellet gun. Held him off till the cops arrived.

You can catch a pic of the perp after the jump, and another of the realistic pellet gun Mama Faber used.
