UFC Video: Urijah Faber To Fight For Interim Bantamweight Title At UFC 148

via cbswzpt.files.wordpress.com

When Dominick Cruz went down with a torn ACL and was removed from his UFC 148 bantamweight title bout with Urijah Faber, it was assumed that there would be an interim title at stake at UFC 148. Last night on UFC Tonight, Dana White confirmed that Faber will indeed still be fighting at UFC 148, and an interim title will be at stake. They're just looking for an opponent.

"What’s going to happen is Urijah Faber is going to fight still. He is going to fight on the same card. Now I’m looking for the right opponent who will fight Faber."

Faber believes that an interim title is a good idea, and talks about who he might fight.

"Yeah, that’s the best idea [to make the fight for the interim title]. Dominick’s been out since his last fight and has had several injuries. I think I’ll be fighting Renan Barao, Ivan Menjivar or maybe Michael McDonald."
