Dominick Cruz Excited To Complete Trilogy With Faber

By Chris Howie

UFC Bantamweight Champ Dominick Cruz was watching UFC 139 closely as he knew his next opponent would get decided when Urijah Faber and Brian Bowles faced off.

Faber would come out and top which means the two will meet for what will likely be the third and last time and in doing so, will decide the winner of their own trilogy which is knotted at one a piece.

Cruz talked about the pending match up yesterday:

“The way that he beat Bowles, I think it warrants a title fight for him,” Cruz said of Faber. “That's fine with me. I've got no problem. It was going to be him or Bowles, I knew that coming into that fight, and I was ready to take on either one of them. He beat somebody in the Top 5 of the division. That's the first time he's been matched up with someone in the Top 5 of the 135-pound division.”

“I thought he looked good. He did exactly what he was supposed to do to be the No. 1 contender. He finished Bowles quickly and put a beating on him,” Cruz said. “I'm excited for the fight to come.”
