You knew some big announcements would be made at the UFC’s “Unstoppable” press conference on Friday, and that’s exactly what happened.
During the event the promotion confirmed that middleweight champion Luke Rockhold and Chris Weidman will battle for a second time at UFC 199. In addition, a rubber match between bantamweight champ Dominick Cruz and Urijah Faber will take place at the June 4th card.
Rockhold ended Weidman’s reign in December at UFC 194, by stopping the wrestler in round four.
Cruz and Faber hold one win each over the other. In 2007, Faber tapped his rival out with a guillotine choke in the opening round. Four years later, however, Cruz earned a UD win the rematch.
So there you go. UFC 200 will almost certainly be huge, but UFC 199 is looking pretty, pretty fantastic.
