Urijah Faber Thinks He Has The Advantage At UFC 169
Posted by Joseph Lee on 01.07.2014



In an interview with MMA Junkie, Urijah Faber (30-6 MMA, 6-2 UFC) said that he thinks he will have the advantage against the UFC bantamweight champion Renan Barao (31-1 MMA, 6-0 UFC) at UFC 169. Barao was made the new champion when Dominick Cruz (19-1 MMA, 2-0 UFC) suffered another injury (groin tear), canceling their title unification fight. The two previously fought in July 2012, which Barao won.

On having an advantage: "I think it does (work to my advantage). This last training camp was a terrible one for me. I had 10 or 11 stitches on my forehead, I had eight stitches on my chin, I hurt my neck pretty bad, and had to get it looked at. Throughout this year, I had to take a lot of breaks that were just as long as the break I've had before this fight for mildly pushing myself. So I feel rested, I feel hungry, and I feel like my skill set's all there. I just have to go out and perform."

On how he got the fight: "It was actually Dana (who called me), and he said, ‘Hey, man, here's the situation,' and he said Dominick Cruz has ripped his leg apart and wanted to know if I was ready to step in. I was like, ‘Damn. Ya know what? I'll do it. Three and a half weeks.'"

On Cruz's bad luck: "I was surprised, man. I feel for the guy. It's all on the back of him probably pushing himself too hard or something. It sucks for him, but I'm ready to seize the opportunity for sure."
