Dominick Cruz vs. Urijah Faber Set For UFC 199
Fox Sports – Nearly four years after their last scheduled bout fell apart, Dominick Cruz and Urijah Faber will finally settle their trilogy at UFC 199 as they meet in the co-main event with the bantamweight title up for grabs.
The fight was announced as part of Friday’s UFC “Unstoppable” press conference.
UFC 199 takes place on June 4 at the Forum in Inglewood, Calif., with middleweight champion Luke Rockhold taking on former title holder Chris Weidman in the main event.
This was the most logical fight in my eyes. It is a trilogy, the two guys hate each other and Faber still creates excitement for the UFC. Age seems to be catching up with Urijah so Cruz should be able to get the W. That will set-up a rematch with Dillashaw and if Dominick comes out on top in that one maybe we will get to see Faber and Dillashaw in the octagon. That could even be for the interim title if Cruz doesn’t stay healthy (knock on wood).
