Faber Feels Barao Is A More Dangerous Opponent Than Cruz | UFC News
By Jamie McAllister
Urijah Faber in an interview with MMAweekly.
Faber comments on how he felt when he found out Dominick Cruz was injured and the Bantamweight Title fight was put on hold.
“I was very disappointed,”
“I feel for the guy. As much as we get on each other’s nerves there is a mutual respect there. We spent a lot of time together. We were so looking forward to ripping each other’s heads off; mostly me ripping his head off and him doing his thing.”
Faber clearly unhappy about the fight being put on hold but remains positive still feels it will happen at some point.
“It sucks for him, it sucks for me, because that’s a big fight,”
“The bright side is, we’re gonna do it at some other point.”
On Renan Barao who Faber feels may be a more dangerous opponent than Dominick Cruz.
“This is the most dangerous fight in the UFC 135-pound division right now,” said Faber, believing that Barão, despite Faber’s loss to Cruz, is the much tougher style match-up.
