When discussing Faber’s most difficult fights, you get the idea that quitting is the furthest thing from his mind whether he’s losing or really really losing. “The second time I fought Mike Brown, I had broken two bones in my right hand, and dislocated my thumb. I was fighting like that for 25 minutes. With Jose Aldo, at the end of the second round, my leg was already starting to feel his kick. It was like getting beat with a bat on my leg for like 20 minutes. I just had to grit it out and do my best and try to win.” Many men would have probably bitched out a long time ago, but not Faber. “I’m in there till the bitter end. I’ve always been someone that pushes through adversity. It’s just a mentality that I’ve always had. I think that’s what defines me. There’s no quit in me.”
