UFC 132: Cruz vs. Faber marks the Ultimate Fighting Championship’s third event in Las Vegas in little more than a month.
UFC bantamweight champion Dominick Cruz has ruled the 135-pound weight class since making the drop down from featherweight. He made that move shortly after losing his bid to wrest the WEC featherweight championship from Urijah Faber four years ago. Cruz hasn’t lost a fight since.
Faber went down a bumpy path after that, losing the title to Mike Brown, and failing to regain it. Like Cruz, he also decided to make the trip down to bantamweight, where he has rejuvenated his career, winning back-to-back fights against Takeya Mizugaki and Eddie Wineland. At UFC 132, he will attempt to make it two-for-two against Cruz when the two square off in the main event.
Wanderlei Silva and Chris Leben will duke it out in the evening’s co-main event.
The UFC held a media conference call with Cruz, Faber, Silva, and Leben fielding questions from members of the media on Tuesday.
