Faber vs. Bowles winners gets title shot, possible redemption
Urijah Faber and Brian Bowles both have a blemish on their records that they want to wash away… a loss to current UFC bantamweight Dominick Cruz.
One of them can get the opportunity to avenge the loss, but they must first fight each other. The winner will then fight for the title.
“Both Urijah and Bowles lost to Cruz” explained UFC president Dana White. The winner of their fight will earn a rematch.”
So the winner of the Faber-Bowles fight will still be counting on Cruz to hang on to the belt when he squares off with Johnson in the main event of UFC on Versus 6 on Oct. 1 in Washington, D.C.
The winner of Faber-Bowles would still get the title shot, just not the shot at redemption.
