Urijah Faber’s mom stops burglary

Urijah Faber's mother showed her own brand of toughness when a robber stopped by the place she was house-sitting. According to Faber, who is currently coaching on "The Ultimate Fighter" and preparing for a UFC 148 title bout with Dominick Cruz, Suzanne Faber used a pellet gun to stop a burglar in the backyard. The burglar thought she was using a real gun. She then held him off until police arrived.

MMA mothers regularly show their toughness. They watch their children get pummeled, support them through their ups and downs, sometimes even help with their careers. Is it a surprise that one of them could stop a crime in its tracks?
