Urijah Faber sends a staggering message to Dominick Cruz and the UFC

Former WEC featherweight champion Urijah Faber sent a loud a clear message to the UFC and UFC bantamweight champion Dominick Cruz on Thursday.

Cruz who is coming off a win to regain the UFC bantamweight title over T.J. Dillashaw has said that he likes the rubber match with Faber and will “gift” him the fight.

Faber responded with a message to Cruz that he posted to Instagram reading:

“I Keep hearing articles talking about me. Apparently @domcruz619 thinks something has been gifted in my life. I’ve had double the amount of fights that dude has in around the same amount of years, i have 5 more finishes than he has total fights, I’ve been a champion or a top contender for the last 13 years. Last time we fought i put MR. Hard to Hit on his ass multiple times. And the reason he is alive is because there are rules in mma and i was forced to let him live. I have jumped up weight classes and fought future hall of famers at multiple divisions. I take on all comers and don’t back out if my body isn’t feeling perfect. I can’t wait to whoop this dope! @danawhiteufc @lorenzofertitta please gimme a date. Lets get a staff of Drs on hand at Cruz’s training and ask his teammates to take it easy. I wanna be the one to break the glass champ!! #glasschamp”
