Best UFC 132: Cruz vs. Faber Moments in PicturesPosted on July 5, 2011, 06:31 AM by Anton Gurevich
LowKick.com Photographer Scott Hirano was on site to capture the best moments from last weekend's UFC 132: Cruz vs. Faber, which took place at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. The event was headlined by Dominick Cruz's third conescutive UFC/WEC Bantamweight title defense against the arch nemesis Urijah Faber, as Chris Leben knocked out Wanderei Silva in the co-main event of the night. Also, former Light Heavyweight Champion Tito Ortz had a date with destiny, defeating Ryan Bader via Submission in Round 1. It was Ortiz's first victory in five years, and without a doubt the most important in his illustrious MMA career.
