Faber finishes Bowles in 2nd, earns title fight

Saturday, November 19, 2011

Urijah Faber was tired of hearing he didn’t deserve an immediate rematch against Dominick Cruz’s UFC bantamweight title, so he took matters into his own hands and laid some lumber on Brian Bowles.

Faber crushed Bowles with an uppercut in the second. The Georgian was stunned and eventually found himself on his back when Faber nailed him with a knee in close quarters. Faber went into overdrive on the ground. Bowles couldn’t fend him off. Faber eventually got control of Bowles’ head and locked on a mean guillotine choke to get the submission victory at 1:27 of the second round at UFC 139 in the HP Pavilion.

Just seconds after the fight was finished, Faber immediately turned his attention to his nemesis Cruz.
