SACRAMENTO -- Its been more than eight years since Urijah Faber held a world title. Cheap Wyatt Teller Jersey . And yet, it still kind of feels as if hes going out on top.The California Kid put on one final show for his hometown on Saturday, defeating Brad Pickett via unanimous decision at UFC Fight Night inside Golden 1 Center. All three judges scored it a 30-26 blowout for Faber.Faber, 37, announced prior to the fight that it would be the last of his 13-year career. He maintained that stance on Saturday, despite the one-sided victory.This life experience has been amazing. I feel like I got my Ph.D. in real life, Faber said. Im ready to go forward and some big things. Thank you to Brad Pickett who is an absolute warrior.The signature moment of the fight happened in the first round, when Faber dropped Pickett (25-13) with a wicked left hook in the pocket. Pickett fell to his back and looked up blankly. Faber followed him to the ground and followed up the knockdown with big shots, but Pickett survived.Later on in the second frame, Faber looked for one of his signature guillotine chokes in the midst of a scramble. Pickett managed to survive that too and even dropped Faber with a left hand in the final round, but Faber popped back up and smiled.According to Fightmetric, Faber outlanded Pickett in total strikes 89 to 20. He is just six months removed from fighting for the UFCs bantamweight title in June but had also lost three of his last four going into Saturday.Its such a surreal experience, said Faber, on hanging up his gloves. I love doing this. Theres nothing like it in the world. But Im ready to move forward.Faber will be remembered as a pioneer for the lower weight classes. Prior to the UFC adding 125-, 135-, and 145-pound weight classes in 2011, Faber was the face of the WEC promotion, which focused exclusively on those divisions. He won the WEC featherweight title in 2006 and defended it five times.His attempt to win back that WEC title in 2010 against Jose Aldo headlined the only pay-per-view event in WEC history. Between 2008 and 2016, Faber fought in seven world title fights between the WEC and UFC but came up short in each one.He is the founder of Team Alpha Male in Sacramento, which currently houses the likes of Cody Garbrandt and Paige VanZant, among others. He finishes with 19 career wins by submission and seven via knockout.Gall keeps winning, stops Northcutt in Round 2Welterweight Mickey Gall (4-0) dropped Sage Northcutt (8-2) with a right hand in the second round, which he quickly turned into a rear-naked choke finish.Prior to the submission, Gall, of New Jersey, might have accomplished an even bigger feat, as he appeared to anger the notoriously upbeat Northcutt.In the opening round, Northcutt gained top position in a scramble and then stood up over Gall and animatedly gestured for him to get up.In the second round, Northcutt opened a cut over Galls right eye with a left hook. As blood started to run down Galls face, Northcutt pointed toward it, smiled and said something to Gall, who smiled back. Moments later, Gall landed a winging right hand in the pocket that put Northcutt on the floor.Sticking with his tradition of calling out opponents, the 25-year-old Gall revealed he intends to drop to lightweight and would like to welcome back former welterweight Dan Hardy, who hasnt fought since 2012.I think Im gonna drop to 155 [pounds], Gall said. I think I can go down there and be a champion in a couple years. Id like to welcome back Dan Hardy. Hes been saying he wants to come back and wants a marquee fight. I think hes a legend, and Id love to fight him.Gall, who gained notoriety by calling out and then dominating retired WWE star CM Punk earlier this year, is now 3-0 in the UFC with three rear-naked choke finishes. Northcutt, who fights out of Katy, Texas, falls to 3-2 in the UFC.Jouban dominates Perry for UD victoryWelterweight Alan Jouban (15-4) halted the momentum of Mike Perry (9-1), as he handed him his first pro defeat via unanimous decision (30-27, 30-27, 29-28).Jouban, out of Lafayette, Louisiana, dropped Perry with a counter left in the opening round and again with a straight left in the second frame. Perry, who had never had a fight go the distance before, wobbled Jouban with a head kick and a left hook early, but his offense stalled as the fight progressed.A big reason for that was Joubans body kicks, which piled up over the 15 minutes. By the third round, Perry looked hesitant and couldnt let his hands go. Jouban utilized his reach and height advantages, scored with more leg kicks and locked up the win.Jouban improves to 6-2 in the UFC. Perry, who fights out of South Florida, drops to 2-1.

One game after a miserable showing in Oklahoma City, Gay tied a career high with 41 points and the Sacramento Kings cruised to a 114-97 victory at the New Orleans Pelicans on Tuesday night. Cheap Taron Johnson Jersey . John Lucas, signed as a mentor for rookie Trey Burke, showed he can score if required, scoring 12 points of his 16 points in the second quarter as Utah built an 18-point lead. http://www.billsjerseyscheap.com/ . Blackwood, 28, has played the last three seasons in the San Diego Padres system, including the past two summers with Class AA San Antonio of the Texas League. CLEVELAND -- Tristan Thompson has never been viewed as an elite shot blocker, but that could be changing.As the Cavs prepare to host the Portland Trail Blazers on Wednesday, Thompson is averaging 1.8 blocks per game -- more than double his career mark of 0.8.He ranks in the top 10 in blocked shots after finishing tied for 72nd last season. He enters Wednesday with at least three blocks in four of the last eight games; he blocked at least three shots in four of the Cavs 103 games last season.The last couple of years we just talked to him about being a better rim protector and being in the right spots, coach Tyronn Lue said. This year, he has come out and done it. Tristan has really found his way defensively. We know hes a great inbound defender, great pick-and-roll defender, great post defender. But now helping on the weakside, getting blocked shots and protecting the basket has been great for us.Thompson earned his five-year, $82 million contract prior to last season primarily for his defensive work. He may be improved this season as a shot blocker, but he still takes the most pride in his ability to switch onto smaller guards in pick-and-rolls. After chasing around Kyrie Irving, J.R. Smith and LeBron James every day, Thompson is able to handle most other guards and wings.I hope they start giving some credit to guys that can guard guards, Thompson said. I know thats not a stat, but that should definitely count. Hopefully I get some credit and make sure you guys dont forget about me when its time to put that name on the (All-Defensive) ballot. Cheap Josh Allen Jersey. he Blazers, meanwhile, are still waiting for their center to get healthy. Ezeli rejoined the team Tuesday in New York after seeking a second opinion on his ailing left knee, but the team provided no real update. Ezeli has yet to appear in a game for the Blazers after receiving an injection in his knee in August that was supposed to keep him sidelined for six weeks.Portland lost at New York, 107-103, Tuesday to fall to a middling 8-8. It has been a disappointing start to the season for a Blazers team that spent $250 million last summer to retain guards C.J. McCollum and Allen Crabbe and add free agent Evan Turner. As a result, Wednesdays game features the two top payrolls in the NBA.The Cavs are embarking on a title defense with their $131 million, but the Blazers are off to a sluggish start despite the summer spending spree and $120 million payroll.I think we are a very average team right now and it shows in our record, McCollum said. The talent is there, but we are not executing well.James missed practice for the Cavs on Tuesday to give his deposition in former players union executive director Billy Hunters wrongful termination lawsuit. James is the vice president of the players union. The deposition is not expected to impact his availability for Wednesdays game.
