Urijah Faber has lost two UFC bantamweight title fights, one to Dominick Cruz and the other to Renan Barao. Now with Cruz and Barao set to unify the titles and Faber on an impressive four fight win streak, he would like nothing more than another title show, and either way, avenge a loss:

“I’d like to take some time off and see what happens with these two guys,” Faber on Monday told MMAjunkie Radio. “I like Barao (to win the fight), but I want to beat up Cruz. So it’s a mix there. It didn’t happen (with Cruz and I) after ‘The Ultimate Fighter.’ It cost us both a lot of money.”

Faber estimates that Cruz’s injury cost him a seven-figure payday. Instead of fighting Cruz for the belt at UFC 148 right before Anderson Silva’s rematch with Chael Sonnen, he was moved to UFC 149’s main event against Barao. While his disclosed payday remained the same, it’s the behind-the-scenes paychecks that Faber was cut out of by not fighting for the title on the original card against Cruz.

But that’s in the past, and now, so is McDonald for Faber – who believes Saturday’s win might be one of the best performances of his career.

“I think it was probably top three,” Faber said before explaining that his 2012, with just the loss to Barao to show for it, was not emblematic of what’s typical for him. “The media is always finding excuses to talk about you, and a lot of times it’s negative stuff. I had a rough year in 2012 on other fronts and only got to fight once, and it was a loss.”

It is likely that Faber should wait it out, he wil recieve another shot at the bantamweight title as he is the clear cut contender. Maybe third time will be a charm for Faber.
