Dominick Cruz Open to Another Faber Fight

Dominick Cruz got revenge when he outpointed Urijah Faber for a unanimous decision in the UFC 132 main event on July 2. Faber had submitted him when they first met in March 2007 at WEC 26. The rematch was an entertaining one, and it begs the question of whether there will be a third fight. “I’m not going to turn down a rubber match,” said Cruz, the UFC bantamweight champion, on the Sherdog Radio Network’s “Beatdown” show. “I fight whoever the UFC thinks is next. … D.J.’s been looking real good — Demetrious Johnson. Brian Bowles won again. I know that he wants to get a shot. It’s not really my job to choose title contenders and what not. I’ve never chose a fight and I never will, but I wouldn’t turn it down.” […]

Dominick Cruz Successfully Defends Bantamweight Title Against Urijah Faber

The first bantamweight title fight in UFC history did not disappoint, as Dominick Cruz and Urijah Faber battled inside the Octagon for 25 minutes and put on a show, with Cruz taking home a unanimous decision and retaining his bantamweight belt. “I’ve got to say, Urijah — man, that dude hits hard,” Cruz said after the fight. “He hits hard, his hands move fast. … Thank you, God.” Both 135-pounders have unorthodox styles, and the clash of those styles was a sight to behold: They both moved around the Octagon like waterbugs, taking strange angles, clashing together and then pulling apart. The fight was close and competitive, and it was surprising that one judge scored it 50-45 for Cruz, saying that Cruz had won all five rounds. The other two judges scored it 49-46 and 48-47 for Cruz, which seemed like more reasonable scores. […]
