TUF Live: Early Cruz vs. Faber III Breakdown
Scott Peterson/MMAWeekly.com

After they are finished coaching on The Ultimate Fighter, bantamweight champion Dominick Cruz and Urijah Faber will meet inside the cage for the third time in their careers. Considering he has lost his past four title fights, the bout may also be Faber's last chance to become champion once again.

In their last meeting in July of last year, Cruz controlled the pace of the fight for the most part, but he wasn't able to pull away from Faber to earn the dominant victory he probably would have preferred. Due to the slightly controversial decision, Faber was given a quick road back to a rematch with Cruz, needing only a knockout of Brian Bowles between his second and third meetings with the 135-pound champion.

As the rubber match between Cruz and Faber approaches this July, let's take a look at which fighter has an edge in the fight for the bantamweight belt.
