Urijah Faber to host Eighth Annual World MMA Awards

WMMA Awards

Top lighter-weight UFC veteran Urijah Faber has been confirmed as one of the hosts at this year's Fighters Only World MMA Awards show. He will be joined by actress Alison Haislip.

"We’re thrilled that Urijah and Alison have agreed to host our Awards show this year," said FO CEO Rob Hewitt. "As MMA fans, we grew up with Urijah Faber - the 'California Kid' - who entertained us with Tupac, then wowed us with his thrilling fights.

"Alison Haislip is an American sweetheart who is loved as much for her high gaming IQ, as her popular television appearances. My thanks go out to both for taking center stage this year."

The red carpet event will take place on Friday February 5th at The Venetian in Las Vegas, Nevada, and is expected to be attended by a host of celebrities and figures from the MMA world, including UFC featherweight champ Conor McGregor who is nominated in three categories - 'Fighter of the Year', 'International Fighter of the Year' and 'Knockout of the Year' (vs. Jose Aldo, UFC 194).

Fans can vote to decide who wins 'Fighter of the Year', 'Fight of the Year' and other awards at worldmmaawards.com. Voting closes January 31st.
