Faber to Fight for Interim Title At UFC 148 & Cruz To Remain As Coach On TUF | UFC News
Dana White comments while on UFC Tonight.
White comments on Urijah Faber staying on the UFC 148 card and fighting for an Interim Title & Cruz remaining as coach on TUF.
â€śSo whatâ€™s going to happen is Urijah Faber will, heâ€™s going to fight still. Heâ€™s going to fight on the same card. Now, Iâ€™m looking for the right opponent. The guy who deserves this shot at Urijah Faber,â€ť
When asked if the bout would be for the Interim Title White replied The answer is yes,â€ť
â€śCruz will stay on. Cruz has done a phenomenal job coaching his team,â€ť
â€śEven the other night if (Mike) Rio would have won, but (Andy) Ogle beat him, but itâ€™s still neck and neck. Yes, he will stay a coach.â€ť
Faber has also commented on the situation.
â€śThatâ€™s the first Iâ€™ve heard of that. I think thatâ€™s the best idea,â€ť Faber said about the title shot coming at UFC 148. â€śDominickâ€™s been out since his last fight. He had his hand surgery. Now heâ€™s out with another surgery, so a year and a half, and I think Renan Barao or Ivan Menjivar or maybe Michael McDonald, but Iâ€™m not sure.â€ť
He comments on a potential match-up with Renan Barao.
â€śHeâ€™s as tough an opponent as Dominick, but a little more dangerous. A little bit slower on his feet, but has a lot of ways to win,â€ť said Faber about Barao.
