Bad Blood: UFC’s Seven Best Trash Talk Battles

Dom Cruz

4) Dominick Cruz vs. Urijah Faber III

The rivalry between Dominick Cruz and Urijah Faber has spanned nearly a decade, but the trash talk between the two truly reached its boiling point when they met for a third and final time at June 2016’s UFC 199 from California.

Their memorable trash talk battle can be seen at no better time than when the two met at the pre-fight press conference. Whether it was Cruz asking Faber why he had never gotten his hands on the UFC belt, or “The California Kid” calling the champion a ‘stage five clinger’, the two went toe-to-toe on the mic. In fact, they even had Bisping and Rockhold at a loss for words while they went back and forth.

With Faber retiring this past weekend and the two squashing their beef, it’s key to remember the epic trash talk battle these two provided us with.
