The UFC delivered fireworks Saturday night at UFC 132 with exciting fights, fast knockouts, and an absolute classic five-round main-event between UFC bantamweight champion Dominick Cruz and Urijah Faber.
Dominick Cruz vs. Urijah Faber will go down as one of the great main-event fights in UFC history. These two guys fought at a frenetic pace for 25 minutes, never slowing down for five full rounds of action. I think that at the end of the day this fight came down to a few takedowns in favour of Cruz.
These guys barely left their feet nor slowed down for five rounds. Cruz went for takedowns but Faber popped right back up. Faber regularly connected on Cruz coming out of the clinch which I thought may have been a difference maker here. Both men were rocked a few times, yet I never got the impression that either man was close to being knocked out or tapped at any point of the fight.
