Faber Unwilling To Wait For Cruz To Return, If Victorious This Weekend Will Defend Interim Title | UFC NEWS
“You know, I don’t care. If Cruz is gonna heal up in time to have this fight, let’s do it. I’d love to fight him next. That’d be ideal for me, but I’m not putting my life on hold because of him not being able to stay healthy. If he’s physically unable, I’m not gonna put my life on hold. This is what I do for a living. This is what I love to do. He’s not the biggest name in the sport. I mean, I understand Carlos Condit waiting for Georges St. Pierre. That’s a huge opportunity for him. I feel like my opportunity is to fight, and I love doing it. I love putting on a show, and I’ll put on a show, with or without Cruz. I’d love for it to be him, but I’m not gonna wait.”
Fighting for the UFC’s interim bantamweight interim title this weekend, Urijah Faber tells UFC Tonight that he will not sit on the shelf and wait for Dominick Cruz to return to action.
