“I’ve got mixed feelings. It’s huge to be on the new channel for the first fight, but the opponent is someone nobody really knows about. I don’t choose my fights. If someone asks me to fight in the Octagon, I have a hard time turning down fights. “Who am I to say he doesn’t deserve it? He’s 27-4 and he’s got 24 finishes, 12 TKOs and 12 submissions. The guy has earned what he’s got… I would love for that to happen,” said Faber about another title fight. “Do we have a champ who’s sturdy enough to stand up and fight? Right now we don’t. We’ve got Renan Barao and old man Dominick Cruz, who could take a lesson from Yuri on getting some finishes in his career. We’ve got to get these guys healed up and to step in so I can beat them for a belt.”
During a recent stint on UFC Tonight, ‘The California Kid’ discussed his upcoming fight scheduled for UFC on FS 1 and took the time on the air to take a quick dig at longtime rival, Dominik Cruz.
