The headlining matchup tonight at UFC 132 in Las Vegas has Dominick Cruz defending his bantamweight title against Urijah Faber. They’ve faced off once back in 2007 one division up and on the occasion Faber submitted the current champ with a guillotine choke. Both have had good runs since and the mood between them remains heated, guaranteeing fireworks at the MGM Grand Hotel and Casino. “I don’t hate the guy, I just think he’s an imbecile. I don’t hope he dies, I don’t hope he gets sick, I just want to beat him and prove I’m better, pure and simple. I’ve been thinking about this fight for four years. When I fought him I thought I could beat him and wanted to beat him, but that’s not how it happened. Now I have my shot at redemption and I’m definitely excited about it, without a doubt,” says Cruz on the official UFC website. “Regardless of what Dominick Cruz thinks he wants or needs, what he really wants is what I’ve got; he’s not going to beat me in the cage. We’re different people; I don’t know if it’s because of me or because of life or whatever, but we’re going to fight, and I don’t care that he wants to take his frustrations out on me. I’m not worried about that,” responds Faber in the same article. Don’t miss the next scenes from this drama; stay tuned to Check out the card:
