Urijah Faber recently made his victorious return back to fighting out of retirement against Ricky Simon winning the fight spectacularly in just 40 seconds. He then went on to call out the UFC’s champ champ Henry Cejudo and challenged him for his bantamweight title. In a recent interview, Faber has now claimed that his former opponent and eternal rival, i.e. the former UFC and WEC bantamweight champion Dominick Cruz was a much more talented and difficult fighter to face than Cejudo.

Faber told Sherdog in a recent interview that Cruz was a really confusing fighter to fight and had his own tough and unique style. He also discussed in the interview how he has been a championship-level fighter and has only ever lost due to bad stylistic matchups. Here’s what he had to say:

I mean, I would imagine it’s very likely. I mean for me, when I left the sport, I was you know, my fight before I retired, I was ranked No. 2 in the world. Then I lost a lackluster decision to basically ankle kicks and that put me at No. 6, I believe. And that’s when I left the sport, and I left on a win against Brad Pickett, who is a solid, solid fighter in the sport…I’ve always been that caliber fighter that can fight for a world championship, and it really comes down to match-ups.

You know, Dom Cruz is a very strange guy to fight. He’s very tough and unique. Henry Cejudo isn’t as confusing, that’s for sure. He’s very mentally tough, which is his strongest attribute in my opinion. He’s obviously a professional and has made these massive gains in his skillset and made little tweaks throughout time. He’s a champion of champions. Henry Cejudo, gold medal, as young as he accomplished it, then coming in and becoming a two-division champion, that is a dream scenario for me to go test myself.
