    I had a feeling he would be making that call pretty soon.

    Good for him. He had a great career and only has one loss in WEC/UFC to someone outside of the top 3. Likely has a decent future as a broadcaster. Great, great fighter.

    Faber has been around forever but since coming to the UFC he has pretty much been a gatekeeper. He's been absolutely incredible outside of title fights but he's got to know he's never going to see UFC gold. Good for him for retiring on his terms.

    His nickname was Uriah "The Altar Boy" Faber right?

    Faber, like Hughes, Franklin, and a few other stars of the pre-UFC monopoly days were great at the time they were on top. I think the athleticism and skill of the athletes just finally caught and surpassed them. Not a bad thing. They were the best of the best when getting into the sport was a niche and a struggle.

    But I don't think guys like Faber, Hughes, Franklin, etc in their primes would even be contenders in the sport today.

    I think Prime Hughes decimates everyone from 4-15 in the current UFC WW rankings.

    Except for maybe MLB.

    If you time traveled a dozen borderline All-Stars from the 60s, 70s, & 80s into today's MLB, they'd be breaking records left and right.

    I believe it, dude could take a nutshot and then complete a running body slam on his opponents.

    I still say that Babe Ruth was the best hitter in MLB history. 2nd in least at bats per homerun, second only to a roid-head McGwire. Record for both slugging (.6897) and on-base plus slugging (1.164). Second all time in RBIs (2,213); 4th in runs (2,174). And with all that power, he batted .342 lifetime. Dude could straight up hit.

    Plus, he got all those stats even though he started his first six seasons as (a really good) pitcher.

    I've always believed Ruth was the greatest Baseball player ever to live and by far the greatest hitter.

    the Babe hit 10 inside-the-park homers in his career, which is two ahead of Willie Mays
    Babe Ruth Hits More Homers than Any Other Team...Twice

    as a pitcher

    lifetime record of 94-46 and an ERA of 2.2770.
