    Hell No. Only fight I care for right now at BW is tj vs urijah.

    At this stage, I'm not sure Faber has anything left for Cruz, as they appear to be on different levels.

    That being said, Faber is cool as hell, and I'd be stoked if he could pull off the fight of his life and finally win the gold.

    I wouldnt mind either, Dont think Faber wins either of them... But think the build up to both would be fun..

    Faber really grew on me as a likeable person during TUF. Much more likeable than cruz and tj IMO so it would be cool to see him finally get ufc gold.

    The king's returned to his throne. All should abide by his decree. Cruz/Faber III it is then.

    I'd rather see Almeida or Sterling in the mix, inject some new blood.

    Yes. Yes I would enjoy Cruz vs Faber 3 very much. I like completing trilogies.

    I want to see TJ vs Faber for the title shot. The way TJ has conducted himself after the loss I don't want to see him get an immediate rematch. I think MM has his hands full with Cejudo so Cruz should just sit back and enjoy the belt for awhile he deserves it.

    I guess for the sake of completing the trilogy, but I've lost track of how many title shots Faber has lost in the last few years.
    I agree with KootenayKid though, I'd rather see some new blood.

    Man this is a toss up in my mind.

    On one hand fuck yes. Id love to see faber cruz 3. But this goes against everything that is sports related because he hasnt earned a shot at the belt.

    I dunno

    yeah hes lost a lot of them... But would be cool if it was Fabers last fight.. Win or lose, to complete the trilogy... Obviously winning would be better lol
