UFC Fighter Urijah Faber vs. Rainn Wilson | Metaphysical Milkshake

September 7, 2019


-[ Grunts ] -[ Singing ]
Take a sip from your soul On a metaphysical milkshake -So, I can hit you, and you won’t feel
any pain, right? Can I go a little bit more?
-Go ahead. -And just a little bit
more, okay? -Okay. -At what point in time
are you gonna get pissed off and just cold-cock me?
-[ Laughs ] -You’re a mixed martial artist,
and you wrote this book. Congratulations. -Thank you very much.
-That’s really awesome. -Yeah, it was
a cool process, man. I’ve been working on it
for a long time, too. -If you could go anywhere
in the world, where would you like to go? -I’d like
to go somewhere I haven’t gone. Somewhere in Greece, possibly. -Oh, not too shabby. -Yeah, it’s kind
of romantic, right? Um, you got any suggestions
what I should do? I’m still fixing it up,
still in the process. Any ideas?
-Maybe a bowl of candy, like a big bowl
of candy, you know. -To lure people
into the back of the van? I ought to…
-[ Chuckles ] -All right. This book is a great service
to the people that follow you
and follow the sport, because you put it all
in context. You know,
your life’s lessons were hard-earned, and you put that into practice
in not just becoming a fighter, but in shaping your life. -It’s kind of a unique book. It’s a little bit
of a memoir. It’s got a lot of stories
of people that I’ve met, my own experiences —
some good, some bad. And then also some lessons that I feel could
help some people out. -You go into a ring with a guy. You go into the cage
with a dude. You ever look at the guy and are like, “Oh. Oh…
This guy’s gonna kick my ass.” Do you ever have that happen where you just get terrified
looking at a guy? -You combat fear with regimen. Training for 10 years and one thing
and then going to do it for 15 minutes,
it’s not that scary. It’s something that’s familiar.
The things that are scary are the things
that you’re not familiar with. -So what about
your personal life? Is there anything that you’re afraid
of outside of the ring? -My sister was just in
a really bad car accident this past year. She was
in a six-car pileup, and she had to have her skull removed to let the brain
swelling go down, and she had, you know,
fractures in her spine and broken ribs
and collapsed lungs. Now that is the type
of thing that’s scary. You have zero control. Feeling compassion for someone
that you care about, I mean, that’s the kind of stuff
that scares me. -Do you want
to fight me right now? -[ Chuckles ]
-Do you want to fight me? -Is there any money in it? -You know what,
let’s thumb-wrestle, and you win,
I give you 20 bucks. -Deal.
-Ready? -One, two, three, four. I declare a thumb war. -You can’t move
your wrist, you little… You can’t, like, lift — you can’t lift your —
Come on, Faber! Oh, you’re slippery. -One, two, three. 20 bones. Oh.
-Champion. -Look at this guy,
great in defeat. -You say in your book there
are perks you get from winning, and there’s knowledge
you get from losing. What’s the knowledge
you’ve gained from losing? -First and foremost,
that you’re not defined by winning and losing. I mean, that’s not
what makes you who you are. It’s about how you live
your life and what you’re made of
as an individual. The other thing is that as long as you’re able to put out
your best effort, it still sucks to lose,
but just not as bad. Like, I’ve had losses
where I’ve broken my hands and fought to the bitter end, and it’s always better
when you get to fight to the bitter end. -YouTubers, what have
you learned from losing? Write it down
in the comment section below. Or else he’s gonna
kick your butt. [ Whaa! ] One of the things
you talk about in your book, which I really loved, is there’s only two things that are known for sure. Number one, you die. And number two, you have to live
each day until you die. -And the rest of that saying is,
“And the rest is up to you.” Until you are off this planet,
you get to make choices. Now, they don’t always work out
exactly how you want ’em. -Mm-hmm. -But until you’re
off the planet, you got another chance
to try again and try again and try again. And why not do it, you know,
following your passion, doing all the stuff
that you want to do. -Let’s do Bruce Lee noises. -Whaa!
-Whaa! You’re a fighter. You get into a cage
with another man. You look him in the eye. You’re sweating.
Your clothes are off. You know that he wants
to pummel you into the ground. You want to pummel him
into the ground. What have you learned
about human nature from being
in that unique position? -I think it’s —
-But before you do that, it’s now time for a small
commercial interruption brought to you by SoulPancake. Please subscribe to our channel. Go.
-Probably the biggest thing is that there’s
breaking points for people. And fighting and battling
and competition in general is about who can
last the longest. And it’s a mental game. And what determines the winner is all about making
the other person reach their
breaking point first. -What’s your breaking point? You look like a —
a little bit like an elf. You’ve got a little vagina
on your chin. I said relax. Aah! [ Bones crunch ] I’m trying to tap out!

    But fighting is so stupid. He seems like a decent chap though. Why does he need to do something as primitive as beating somebody else up?

  • Reply magx01 September 6, 2012 at 8:25 pm

    Why do you equate primitive with negative? Sex is also primitive. Your comment itself is borne of a primitive desire to assert/delineate yourself. The primitive drive to compete for resources is the backbone of capitalism. Primitive does not have to be negative, does it?

    Personally, I love mixed martial arts because it's a distillation of the competitive drive to its simplest elements, while also having the gravest of consequences be a possibility.

    Because it's what he loves to do. Also, it's very dismissive of you to say "fighting is so stupid". MMA is a rapidly growing sport that is taking the world by storm. Give it a chance, go watch a UFC fight, preferably Dan Henderson vs Mauricio Shogun Rua, Forrest Griffin vs Stephan Bonnar, or hell, go watch some Chuck The Iceman Liddell highlights.

Why bother making anti-bullying videos if parents are just going to make "please beat up my kid" videos? POOR KID!

    what i learned from losing is that some things are meant fighting for in the end, you fall down, you get back up and you earn your place. I also learn that some things are not meant for you at all, it just means that you've reached the end of the line and that no matter what you do it will always still be the same result.

    what have you learnt from losing?
    You have a choice when you lose. You can either see it as an indictment–as a kind of statement about your apparent lack of worth–and give up, or you can see it as an opportunity to find and correct what you're doing wrong. The less emotional investment you have in a loss the better off you'll be.
    keep a notebook. After every performance (that includes training sessions), write down what you've been doing wrong, or what you could improve. Then create training plans from that. Then Execute. Then repeat.
