Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports

It took Faber less than two rounds to finish off the young gun with a guillotine.

In the co-main event of UFC on Fox 9 featured two former Bantamweight contenders in Urijah Faber and Michael McDonald. Despite giving up 12 years to the younger Mcdonald, Faber once again probed himself one of the truly elite fighters at 135 lbs. After rocking McDonald on the feet late in the second round, Faber choked him out with a guillotine to finish the fight.

Faber scored early with a takedown in the opening seconds. McDonald mostly just locked Faber down, he did try to isolate the arm a couple times, but was not agressive in guard before being stood up with under two minutes left in the round. Faber was able to catch a kick, but couldn't score the takedown. Quick combination landed by McDonald. Faber landed an overhand right before the bell closed the round.

McDonald looked to counter more in the second round. He landed a couple good shots as Faber came in and shrugged off the first takedown attempt of the round. Action stopped for a second after an errant blow from Faber. Urijah landed a big hook that had McDonald shook up. He kept his composure and hit Faber with a right hand of his own to slow the "California Kid". They stayed even on the feet before Faber landed another big punch to drop McDonald. "Mayday" was on wobbly legs and took two more big shots before falling to the mat. He clung to single that gave Faber the opportunity to lock on the fight ending guillotine choke.
