While fight fans were crushed by the news earlier this week that the UFC 148 rubber match between bantamweight champ Dominick Cruz and longtime rival Urijah Faber was being put on hold after Cruz tore his ACL, there is good news for both men, as White revealed that Cruz will remain in his coaching role opposite Faber on The Ultimate Fighter Live and that “The California Kid” will remain on the UFC 148 card on July 7th to fight for the interim 135-pound title against an opponent to be named.

“What’s going to happen is Urijah Faber is going to fight still,” said White. “He is going to fight on the same card. Now I’m looking for the right opponent who will fight Faber.”

Dana is probably thrilled that they can make an interim fight against an opponent they can custom pick for Faber to beat.

Umm I know this may not be popular but what about what happened with Tito? Dana made him walk why not Cruz? Plus how is Cruz gonna be physically able to help/show these guys what to do with a blown ACL?

Not really a Tito fan just a fan of consistency. Not interested in seeing two guys jaw at each other that aren't gonna fight now. Phone Post

Great decision Cruz will still have the respect and voice of his Team after 10 weeks they built up a bond and now Dom and his Coaching Staff can continue with their job without losing any continuity that would of occurred if Dana would have chosen to replace Cruz.

Now if Dana picks Barao or M. McDonald what's really wrong with this decision?

"Crushed" is a bit of an overstatement.

Dif is the Cruz injury was a fluke injury that would be impossible to fight with. Tito's injury was more of a nagging injury, one I'm sure Dana felt Tito knew about before signing up for TUF.

Chuck for sure thought Tito wanted out of the fight, and just wanted to be on the show, so perhaps Dana did as well.

Make no mistake about it, he was punishing Tito. Cruz should not be punished.

Tito knew about his injury/needed surgery before the show started.
