Urijah Faber Fires Back At Dominick Cruz: I Can’t Wait To Whoop This Dope!

Urijah Faber

Reigning UFC bantamweight champion Dominick “The Dominator” Cruz recently bashed long-time rival Urijah Faber, saying that “The California Kid” has been gifted title shots throughout his career.

Faber, however, begs to differ.

“The California Kid” is a former WEC champion, but has indeed gone 0-3 in UFC title shots. One of those shots at UFC gold came against Cruz at 2011’s UFC 132 in which “The Dominator” edged out a decision victory. Prior to that, Faber had submitted Cruz back at WEC 26 in 2007.

With Cruz now seemingly healthy after years of injuries, and Faber still near the top of the division, the time is now for the trilogy bout.

“The California Kid” seems overly excited to get his hands on Cruz one more time, recently taking to his official Instagram account to fire back at his rival, expressing his interest in breaking the “glass champ”:

I keep hearing articles talking about me. Apparently@domcruz619 thinks something has been gifted in my life. I’ve had double the amount of fights that dude has in around the same amount of years, i have 5 more finishes than he has total fights, I’ve been a champion or a top contender for the last 13 years. Last time we fought i put MR. Hard to Hit on his ass multiple times. And the reason he is alive is because there are rules in mma and i was forced to let him live. I have jumped up weight classes and fought future hall of famers at multiple divisions. I take on all comers and don’t back out if my body isn’t feeling perfect. I can’t wait to whoop this dope! @danawhiteufc@lorenzofertitta please gimme a date. Lets get a staff of Drs on hand at Cruz’s training and ask his teammates to take it easy. I wanna be the one to break the glass champ!! #glasschamp”

Referring to Cruz as the glass champ is a dig at the champion’s notorious injury history, and although it’s nothing serious, Cruz is rehabbing a slight foot injury suffered in his UFC Fight Night 81 bout with TJ Dillashaw.

The champion shouldn’t be out too long, and the UFC is likely to book Cruz vs. Faber III in the near future.

Who are you picking to settle the score?
