Dana White confirms Dominick Cruz vs. Urijah Faber for the batamweight gold

UFC President, Dana White has confirmed that bantamweight champion, Dominick Cruz will make the first UFC title defence against the only man that holds a win over him, Urijah Faber after “The California Kid” impressed this past Saturday night at UFC 128 in Newark, New Jersey.

White, speaking at the post-fight press conference, said:

“Yeah, that fight’s gonna happen.”

It is yet to be determined wheather or not the two will coach the next season of “The Ultimate Fighter” reality show, a scenario that looked likely after the promotion announced the involvement of bantamweights and featherweights for the first time on TUF.
