Faber’s sister, Michaella Tastad, was involved in a major car collision the day after Thankgsiving. Tastad had life-threatening head injuries and was put into a medically-induced coma. She had a collapsed lung, spleen damage, and part of her skull was removed to help drain fluid. Tastad was released from the hospital Friday and Urijah greeted her with a matching haircut. The 32-year-old contender says his hair hasn’t been this short in about 12 years.
The two are close and Michaella even works for her brother. She lives next door to him in Carmichael (Calif.) and helps cook for him and organize his schedule. Getting his sister back home was probably the best Christmas present Urijah could have had.
