Dominick Cruz Out at UFC 169, Urijah Faber Replaces Him for UFC Bantamweight Championship
Posted by Jeffrey Harris on 01.06.2014

UFC President Dana White appeared on ESPN SportsCenter today and announced that former UFC bantamweight champion Dominick Cruz is out of his scheduled UFC 169 main event title bout against interim champion Renan Barao set for Super Bowl Weekend. Due to a groin injury, Cruz has bowed out of the fight and relinquished the UFC bantamweight title. Urijah Faber will now replace Cruz against Renan Barao for the undisputed UFC bantamweight title. The UFC has also confirmed the news on their Twitter feed.

Faber previously lost a five round decision to Barao at UFC 149 in July 2012 for then interim UFC bantamweight title. Since that fight, Faber won four straight fights in 2013, beating Ivan Menjivar, Scott Jorgensen, Yuri Alcantara, and Michael McDonald. Three of his four wins came by decision. Following his win over Faber, Barao submitted McDonald and knocked out former WEC bantamweight champion Eddie Wineland.

UFC 169 is set for February 1 in Newark, New Jersey.
