UFC Rematch probable for Uriah Faber and Dominick Cruz

Jul 9, 2011 10:22 PM

After last week’s upset of fan favorite, Uriah Faber against UFC Bantamweight Champion Dominick Cruz, a third re-match is likely to satisfy not only the fans, but the fighters as well. Going the distance, all five title championship rounds were closely scored with Cruz defending his title by unanimous decision.

The shocking upset of the UFC 132 comes from Tito Ortiz with his first round submission of Ryan Bader. The underdog, Ortiz, came into the fight knowing that without the win his UFC career was over after Dana White publicly announced the decision. Also, a big upset came from Chris Leben in his domination of Wanderlei Silva ending in the first round with a knock out.

On the heels of Ortiz’s win, Bengal’s receiver Chad Ochocinco posted on his Twitter account that he looks forward to beating Ortiz "to a pulp on national TV any day now." With the NFL agreement negotiations still pending, this isn’t the first time Ochocinco has made mention of participating in the UFC. He has previously asked Dana White for a shot in the cage as well as calling out UFC middleweight champ, Anderson Silva.

Strikeforce women’s welterweight title on July 30 will feature Miesha Tate and Marloes Coenen. This will be a fight to watch as Tate returns to the ring after a year of recovering from a knee injury. This comes on the news of women’s MMA legend, Cristiane "Cyborg" Santos, still pending a contract from Strikeforce.
