UFC 199: Dominick Cruz & Urijah Faber Interview On The Herd [VIDEO]

UFC bantamweight champion Dominick Cruz and Urijah Faber can’t wait to face each other for the third time in the co-main event at UFC 199, you can really tell in a recent interview with The Herd. Ahead of the title bout, both fighters go at it again and continue to argue over the genesis of their mutual dislike, how their previous fights went, and their MMA accomplishments.

Clearly, there’s dislike between the two and surprisingly a pre-fight brawl hasn’t broke out yet. Faber has “some respect” for Cruz, but doesn’t believe his body is “made for battle.”

Faber said,

We started around the same time. It’s been 13 years for me. It’s been 11 years for him. I have more than double the fights… You get notoriety when you fight. He deserves notoriety but he hasn’t been fighting. He’s not made for battle. His mind is made for battle. He’s got heart, he’s got those kind of things but his body is not.

Cruz fired back,

Let’s say my body isn’t built for battle. Okay. Then I’m just beating you not built for battle because of my brain. Okay. That’s fine. I’ll take that. The point is I’m facing the best guys in the division since 2009. I’m talking top three. He’s not faced those guys and each guys [sic] that I’ve faced in the top 3 of each division has been either for titles or they’re contenders or they’re the best in the world still currently now. The people that he’s faced for the title he’s lost every single time he’s faced for the title.

For the full interview, you can now watch the video clip right above. UFC 199: Rockhold vs. Weidman will be held on June 4, 2016 at The Forum in Inglewood, California.
