Urijah Faber on Coahing TUF vs. Dominick Cruz: “He’s going to realize that I’m just cool and I’m also going to beat him up”

Former WEC featherweight champion, Urijah Faber has welcome the oppertunity to coach the upcoming season of “The Ultimate Fighter” opposite UFC bantamweight champion, Dominick Cruz, but first he needs to take care of business this weekend at UFC 128 in Newark, New Jersey.

Faber, speaking via MMAWeekly.com, Faber said:

“I definitely didn’t want to sit out. This is what I love to do, I love to fight, and it’s also what I do for a living. I don’t think sitting out that long would do anybody any good. I’m excited about fighting him in the future, but I’ve just got to get this win out of the way first and Eddie’s a tough dude.”

“I haven’t heard anything about that, and I wouldn’t be surprised if they went with someone else, maybe not even in the weight class, because they’ve done that before. I would love to do it. I don’t really know him all that well, but I can put up with anybody. Hanging out with me, he’s going to realize that I’m just cool and I’m also going to beat him up.”

“We’ll just wait and hear about that. I’ve got to get this fight out of the way first and let the guys decide who does all that stuff.”
