Urijah Faber: Cruz is ‘The Irritator’ not ‘The Dominator’

Thursday, June 23, 2011


Our first fight, I wasn’t impressed with the guy at all. He wasn’t a terrible fighter, but it wasn’t anything that stood out.

He’s changed, but the thing that hasn’t changed with him, is that he’s not dangerous. It’s ironic that a guy, especially with the name Dominick ‘The Dominator’ Cruz, isn’t dominating anyone. He should be called an ‘Irritator’ or ‘The Eluder’ not Dominator’.

Am I a guy that is worried about his stand-up game? No I’m not. I’m a hard guy to hit. I feel like my wrestling pedigree is better, my jiujitsu is better, and I feel like my hands are going to be better.
