It's never been any kind of a secret that UFC bantamweight champion Dominick Cruz absolutely dislikes ex WEC featherweight champion Urijah Faber. The two have been taking shots at each other for years. Their mutual dislike for each other even culminated with the UFC building a season of TUF around this dynamic.
Both fighters have faced each other twice and have an even 1-1 record. Faber handed Cruz his first professional loss and Cruz avenged that loss by handing Faber his 5th professional loss.
via mmamania.com Cruz said this about his nemesis:
"I'm one of two people to ever keep Faber from becoming a UFC champion. He will forever be known as the former WEC champion. He will always be a number one contender and never anything more."
It's unlikely the two will face off anytime in the near future as Cruz who has been sidelined for what seems like an eternity with multiple knee injuries will have to face interim bantamweight champion Renan Barao to earn his title back. Even though he hasn;t technically lost it, Cruz has not defended his title since October 1st 2011, and Barao has defended his interim title once since winning it in a bout with none other than Urijah Faber.
