Faber bugs me. I love watching him fight because he's entertaining as hell, but he still bugs me. Cruz doesn't bug me, but watching him fight definitely does. He reminds me of a crack addict.

I would rather have Faber as the champ than Cruz simply because I hate watching Cruz' style. And, Cruz' style is a style that isn't geared towards finishing fights. I'm not a fan of that.

Unfortunately, I think Faber is going to lose.

I like Faber more and more as I look at the match up. Faber is the better grappler of the two and honestly striking I think Faber will surprise a lot of people. Cruz likes to open up with those big swings and everyone backs away and lets him chase. Faber will get in his face get in close and throw elbows. Also regardless of what people say, I think Faber is perfectly capable of taking Cruz down. Im gonna say it Cruz has looked good cause he has been facing outside of Joseph Benavidez less than stellar competition. Guys like Scott Jorgensen are fun to watch but are not great fighters. Faber will surprise everyone and take this fight.

Well the tides have changed a lot around here. I am sticking with my boy in a 5 round dominant decision.

How can you guys like Uriah?I like to watch him fight because he improvises but man,that s#@t eatin grin he puts on whenever the camera's on him just bugs the hell outta me.Dominic has a elusive style that's fun to watch and isn't afraid to mix it up.He's also very down to earth and not plasic like that california alpha male.I hope Dom pulls it off.
