Urijah Faber on Beef with Dominick Cruz, Fight with Alcantara and MMA Combine
From the highest of highs to the lowest of lows, Urijah Faber always seems to take things in stride. The fighter known as “The California Kid” has always been one of the more positive figures in mixed martial arts. That attitude has earned him a large fanbase, as well as respect from his employers with the UFC.
That’s not to say that everyone is a fan of the former WEC featherweight champion. Despite his ever-present smile and upbeat personality, Faber has gained his fair share of detractors. Chief among that group is the current UFC bantamweight champion, Dominick Cruz.
Cruz and Faber have had their issues dating back to the WEC days, and those issues have followed them to the UFC. Faber recently discussed the beef between the two, saying he’s “just chillin”, while Cruz “has a chip on his shoulder” when it comes to Faber.
Other topics that Faber discussed when he recently spoke to Fight! Magazine were his upcoming bout with Yuri Alcantara, creating stars in the bantamweight division, and perhaps, most interesting of all was the upcoming MMA combine that Faber will be associated with.
Faber will host the first MMA combine very soon. That event will take place at the UFC Fan Expo on July 6 at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas. Assisting Faber during the combine, which will be run much like the draft combine in other sports, will be various UFC fighters, including Phil Davis and some of Faber’s teammates from Team Alpha Male.
