Urijah Faber Feels For Dominick Cruz, Despite Their Past Differences

Urijah Faber wants nothing more than to defeat Dominick Cruz and settle their feud once and for all.

However, as Cruz works his way back from a second knee surgery, Faber reached out and expressed his sympathy towards the UFC bantamweight champion on UFC Tonight earlier this week.

I definitely feel for him. When it comes down to the fact, the guy loves the sport, he works hard and there are a lot of admirable things about him. I want him to heal up so I can beat him. I’ve got to win a couple of fights against top dudes like Ivan Menjivar. Then I’ll be back in there again with him. I wish him a speedy recovery. I hate to hear it, really.

Faber is scheduled to face Ivan Menjivar in early 2013, while a return for Cruz is unknown at this time.
