He wants to see what happens with them...
Urijah Faber recently spoke about his win over Michael McDonald at UFC on FOX 9 and more. Check out the highlights:
On wanting a rematch with Dominick Cruz or Renan Barao: "I'd like to take some time off and see what happens with these two guys. I like Barao (to win the fight), but I want to beat up Cruz. So it's a mix there. It didn't happen (with Cruz and I) after ‘The Ultimate Fighter.' It cost us both a lot of money."
On where his win over McDonald stands among his fights: "I think it was probably top three. The media is always finding excuses to talk about you, and a lot of times it's negative stuff. I had a rough year in 2012 on other fronts and only got to fight once, and it was a loss."
On three of his Team Alpha Male mates being on the card: "Everywhere I looked, I felt like I saw somebody I knew, so that was pretty cool. There's emotions involved, but there are always emotions involved. I always enjoy the camaraderie of all the guys warming up together. It was an us-vs.-them mentality. The closest communities in the world understand who their enemies are. We had that opportunity, and that always helps, in my opinion."
