Dominick Cruz on Urijah Faber: “The bottom line is he’s become my biggest fan”

UFC bantamweight champion, Dominick Cruz talks about the attention he’s getting from former WEC 145 pound champion, Urijah Faber over the past six months, explaining The California Kid” has become his biggest fan.

Cruz, speaking via MMAWeekly.com, said:

“I definitely want that fight. It’s something I’ll take in stride. I prefer to have that fight fighting for ‘The Ultimate Fighter’ as a coach, that’s something I was really going for. It’s pretty much up to the UFC. My job is to fight and to fight the best guys in the world, and I feel like beating Urijah is just a way to solidify that for myself.”

“The bottom line is he’s become my biggest fan in a sense because I hear ‘Dominick Cruz’ out of his mouth more on any show ever. In a sense, thank you. You do remember that trash talk when you’re in the fight with somebody. You remember everything that they say to you over the 10-week process of camp, all the trash that they’re saying and all the negative that they’re saying about you, and when I go in there and fight, I let all that out.”
