Cruz faced his longtime rival for a third time at UFC 199 in June, and proceeded to outscore Faber for the unanimous decision win. In doing so, the bantamweight champ took his rubber match series with “The California Kid”.
Obviously the UFC was confident a bout between Cruz and Garbrandt would materialize at some point, as they had cameras on “No Love” during the bout. You can watch Garbrandt’s reaction to the fight below.
UFC 207 will take place on December 30th in Las Vegas, Nevada.
