Urijah Faber Earns Shot at Champ Dominick Cruz with UFC 128 Win

Urijah FaberUrijah Faber is set to rematch champion Dominick Cruz for the UFC bantamweight title after earning a unanimous decision over Eddie Wineland in his Octagon debut at Saturday’s UFC 128 event.

UFC President Dana White confirmed the matchup at the post-UFC 128 press conference, but a date has yet to be set and will depend on whether Faber and Cruz serve as coaches on The Ultimate Fighter 14.

Cruz (17-1) has won eight-straight since being submitted in the opening round by the featherweight champ Faber in 2007, including a December win over Scott Jorgensen, while Faber (25-4) has earned back-to-back wins since dropping to 135-pounds.
