WEC Quick Quote: Urijah Faber not happy about Dominick Cruz acting like an 'immature punk'

"I’m not one to dwell on the past too much, but I really don’t care for the guy (Cruz) too much and I’d love to go down there (to bantamweight) and fight him at some point. The whole thing was, basically, we signed these posters for charity, and give them to a lot of people as gifts. The fighters take some and all the fighters sign them. The day of the fight, he was just being basically an immature punk and signing all over my face with his signature. So you know, for me, who’s a good sport and not a little punk, it would kind of piss me off. I don’t really like the guy very much. I don’t know him too well. We’ve spoken here and there and I’m not like trying to fight him when I see him or anything, but it kind of says a little something about his character."

-- Former WEC featherweight champion Urijah Faber explains his negative history with No. 1 WEC Bantamweight contender Dominick Cruz on’s exclusive presentation of Pro MMA Radio. Faber made Cruz pay for his poorly placed signature at WEC 26, winning via rear naked choke in the first round, and now says he is open to a fight with Cruz at 135 pounds in the future. Faber recently signed a seven fight contract with the WEC and says he is ready to get back into the cage. While his eyes are still fixed on the featherweight belt he was the longtime holder of, he won't rule out bantamweight as a future option for "The California Kid."
