UFC 148: Urijah Faber Thinks He'll Fight For Interim Title, Believes Renan Barao Is Best Option

Urijah Faber has responded to the news that expected UFC 148 opponent Dominick Cruz is out of their bout with an ACL tear. After implying that Ronda Rousey is the one that did it to Cruz, he tweeted about the injury and named Renan Barao as the best option to fill in on July 7th:

Sucks about @thedomin8r hope recovers fast! Sounds like 9 months aftr surgery @renanbaraoufc seems like the best replacement! @danawhite

He also released a video through his Youtube page where he made another reference to Rousey, and expanded on who he thinks he could face. He believes that it will be for an interim title, and he names Barao again, but also says that Michael McDonald and Ivan Menjivar could be possibilities. He doesn't know what the deal is yet, he's just offering up his opinion. He also plugs his book. Check the video after the jump.
