UFC bantamweight champion Dominick Cruz isn't going to let rival Urijah Faber forget one of the most memorable moments so far in season 15 of The Ultimate Fighter. This video—shot by Cruz himself—reminds everyone of the mind games going back and forth between the two former WEC champs.
During the second episode of TUF, Cruz's team gained control after James Vick knocked out Daron Cruickshank in the very first round.
When given the chance to choose an opponent for Justin Lawrence, Cruz gave Faber the control back and told him to pick his "best guy."
Faber couldn't make a pick and decided to let someone stand up and take the fight. Nobody responded, and Cruz decided to make the pick himself.
During episode three, one of the more anticipated fights between Team Faber member Cristiano Marcello and Lawrence took place. Lawrence won in the second round by knockout, giving Team Cruz their second victory.
With two of the favorites now out, both from Team Faber, Cruz definitely is gaining control in more ways than one. Faber's team could be lacking a bit of confidence, but there is still time for both teams to make a statement.
Cruz and Faber will fight for a third time after the season is over later this year. While Faber was victorious during their first meeting in 2007, Cruz has since gone undefeated and beat Faber in their rematch from last year.
