Urijah Faber recently told FOX Sports that he’s been waiting for another shot at Dominick Cruz. Faber and Cruz each have one win over each other, making a potential third fight the rubbermatch. Here’s what he had to say:
“Cruz, you have got to give it to him. What a journey he has been on,” Faber told Fox Sports on the post-fight show. “He’s a real champion, he’s a true champion, he’s only lost to one team, that’s Team Alpha Male. He’s only lost to one guy, that’s me.”
“And I feel like I beat him the second time also. I connected to his chin. I know he feels like he’s hard to hit. I found his chin, his butt found the ground, and I’m going to make that happen again. So let’s do it, Dom! this has been a long time coming.”
“I’ve been sticking around a couple extra years just to let you heal up buddy! You’re not made for battle. Thank goodness you made it out this thing, hopefully alive, hopefully, the foot’s okay. Let’s do this!”
Faber’s most-recent fight was a victory over Frankie Saenz at UFC 194.
