Urijah Faber Leaning Toward Picking Renan Barao Over Dominick Cruz

By Sherdog.com Staff Dec 17, 2013
Urijah Faber, on “Beatdown,” discussing the UFC 169 bantamweight title bout between champions Dominick Cruz and Renan Barao:

“I don’t think the injury is going to be an issue for Cruz. I think he’s too mentally strong for that. I think it’s really going to come down to who’s the better fighter and how they match up. I’m kind of leaning towards Barao just because I feel like he’s a little bit more durable than Cruz. … I don’t think Cruz is going to be able to hurt him, and Barao is super dangerous on the ground as well and Cruz likes to do those takedowns to score points. I think he’s going to have a difficult time with Barao with that, but I really don’t know. I’m looking forward to watching it.”
