Since Cruz took the bantamweight title back from TJ Dillashaw last month, there’s been no shortage of talk about him fighting Faber for a third time. A few days ago, Cruz said he would give Faber a shot, even though the former WEC champ isn’t “relevant”.
Well, obviously Cruz’s comments have got back to Faber, as he recently posted this on Instagram.
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….again!! #glasschamp
Faber submitted Cruz back in 2007, and the latter won their 2011 rematch by UD.
