Cruz vs Faber II Headlines UFC 132
After three years, Dominick Cruz and Urijah Faber will meet once again at UFC 132.
A long-awaited rematch between bantamweight champion, Dominick Cruz, and Urijah Faber has been tapped as the headliner for the upcoming UFC 132. Both fighters first met at WEC 26 three years ago. Back then, former featherweight king, Urijah Faber, submitted Dominick Cruz in just 98 seconds. And that remains as Dominick Cruz’s sole defeat.
Since his loss, Dominick Cruz has won eight consecutive fights, including his win over former bantamweight champ — Brian Bowles. He continued to defend his title against Joseph Benavidez and Scott Jorgensen. Late last year, Dominick Cruz was hailed as UFC’s first bantamweight champion after the UFC-WEC merger announcement.
Meanwhile, Urijah Faber recently made his Octagon debut at UFC 128. He made a unanimous decision win over Eddie Wineland, en route for an immediate title shot and coaching stint at the upcoming TUF 14.
UFC 132: Cruz vs Faber II will kick off on July 2, at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. The event’s main card will air on pay-per-view.View Article Source »
