Aljamain Sterling tells Urijah Faber to fight Dominick Cruz for in a 'old man's match' - Sterling

Last week Urijah Faber made his return back to the Octagon after having retired for almost two years. He knocked out #15 ranked contender Ricky Simon in the first round at the Golden 1 Center in Sacramento, California.

It took all but 45-seconds for Faber to unload an overhand right on Simon to drop him and then follow up with a series of strikes until the referee had to step in.

Immediately after the fight, Faber called out current UFC flyweight and bantamweight champion Henry Cejudo. However, this call out hasn’t gone down well with #2 ranked contender Aljamain Sterling, who thinks Faber doesn’t deserve a fifth title shot.

I didn’t think he’d be that irrational to think that after coming out of retirement after such a long layoff and losing to a guy [Jimmie Rivera] that two guys ahead of him beat,” Sterling said in an interview with Submission Radio. “I just didn’t think that made a ton of sense. I understand he’s a legend and all that, he just has a huge following and what not, but let’s be real here, the guy’s had four title shots, and right now I don’t think he’s deserving of a fifth.”

However, Sterling not only said that Faber doesn’t deserve a title shot, but he also went as far as saying that Faber doesn’t have much chance against elite bantamweights in the UFC.

I mean, didn’t we see it already?” Sterling said. “He lost to Jimmie Rivera. I mean, I don’t know if there’ much else to say about that. . . Maybe him and Dominick Cruz could have an old man’s match, the retired fighters. So, maybe they can challenge each other for the retired MMA fighter’s league, the has-beens.” Sterling said.

Sterling himself is coming off of a unanimous decision victory over Pedro Munhoz and is currently riding on a four-fight winning streak. He will most probably fight Petr Yan for the interim bantamweight title.
