“I’m almost positive we’re going to have a rematch." --- Urijah Faber, UFC Bantamweight fighter

Despite his unanimous decision loss against at , he’s confident that he will have another crack for the title sometime in the future. As he stated on Bruce Buffer’s ‘It’s Time’ show on Shedog Radio Network:

“I’m almost positive we’re going to have a . I think it needs to happen to find out who’s the boss. I don’t feel like I was threatened at all. I feel like I could have done more. He probably feels like he could have done more. I think it needs to happen.”

Although reigning bantamweight champ, Dominick Cruz, out-pointed in their recent face-off, the later also holds a win over the division’s king. It should be remembered that the California Kid was able to submit Dominick Cruz via guillotine choke last March 2007 at WEC 26. That said, a third encounter makes sense. However, the bantamweight contender is not sure on when it’s going to happen.

Urijah Faber also believes that he fought a good fight. However, he might have to try another approach once he gets another chance to meet Dominick Cruz.

“I tried going for the finish. I don’t really think about decisions very much and I think I need to start being a little more cognizant of that. I definitely feel like I could have been more of a person that’s put on the appearance of winning the fight rather than trying to finish the fight. I think that was the difference.”
