Dominick Cruz vs. Urijah Faber on July 7th in Vegas, Rich Franklin Could Return

“Ultimate Fighter” season fifteen coaches, Dominick Cruz and Urijah Faber will square off for the third time for the UFC bantamweight title in Las Vegas, Nevada on July 7th, 2012.

The news was revealed by UFC co-owner, Lorenzo Fertitta via his Twitter Q&A last night. He also revealed former middleweight champion, Rich Franklin could also return on this date.

Cruz has cleaned out the 135 pound division, defeating the likes of Urijah Faber, Demetrious Johnson and Brian Bowles. A rematch with Faber could solidify a move to the 145 pound division for a new challenge.

Faber is coming off an impressive second round submission win over former WEC champion, Brian Bowles, bouncing back from the close decision loss to Cruz last summer.
