UFC 132: Urijah Faber Thinks Dominick Cruz Is "Immature"

Mike HodgesCorrespondent IMay 6, 2011

The recent bad blood between rivals Urijah Faber and UFC bantamweight champion, Dominick Cruz has certainly been well-documented.

Both competitors will headline UFC 132, when they meet in a rematch from WEC 26, to determine the newly crowned bantamweight champion. 

While appearing as a guest on MMA Fight Corner Radio, Faber did not hold anything back when discussing his opponent. In fact, the former WEC featherweight champion used as little dialogue as possible

"Immature," Faber said when asked on describing his opponent. 

The last time both men competed, Faber picked up the victory, submitting Cruz via guillotine choke.

Since failing to recapture his featherweight title against Mike Thomas Brown and current title holder Jose Aldo, Faber recently moved down to bantamweight and made his debut at UFC 128.

Faber defeated Eddie Wineland via unanimous decision and following the bout he proceeded to call out his rival, Cruz.

The win ultimately earned Faber a title shot against Cruz, scheduled for this summer. 

Faber continued to speak of his disdain for Cruz, and while he isn't one to trash-talk or belittle his opponents, "The California Kid" said he respects the bantamweight champion, but he wouldn't consider him a friend.

"I was forced to spend some time with him this last week with the Marines in Camp Pendleton in San Diego and it was fun," Faber said.

"He can actually take a joke, and we were at each other's throat a little bit at the beginning there. He's a decent guy, but he has a lot of growing up to do, and me beating him up is going to be part of that process."

UFC 132 is scheduled for July 2nd, live from the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada.
