Glad they finally stripped him of the title. Will be interesting to see how Faber does. Cruz needs to seriously retire he's missed close to what, 3 years with injuries? Faber has been on a tear and deserves the shot. Can he capture his first title since WEC?
Yeah, I don't expect it to be an issue, but more rest is typically better. This is pretty awesome for Urijah, coming off of a perfect year, getting an immediate title shot. I personally hope he can pull through in this one.
Faber/Barao again? I get that there isn't anyone else in the division but that first fight was atrocious. I don't see Faber winning and Faber won't get subbed or KO'ed, probably another 5 round snooze fest.
