We are all familiar with the tactics of the champions of calling their opponents names in front of the media and to challenge them in forthcoming fights.
Dominick Cruz is not afraid to sit back and so he has been accusing Urijah Faber. The accusations relate to usage of PED which he feels is simply out of jealousy.
This is definitely in the event of promoting the fight that is coming up for defending the title. UFC 199 will feature Urijah and Dominick where the latter will be defending his title. There are a lot of promotions being done for the upcoming fight. Faber has been talking about Cruz using PED while Cruz has said that the allegations have no ground.

Cruz, who has a record of 20-1 in Mixed Martial Arts and unbeaten in three fights in the UFC, is on a streak of eleven wins on the trot, some of them over the biggest names in the sport. Unfortunately, a series of knee injuries and complications in the surgery process has limited him to just one fight since October 2011.
While many expected ring rust to take a huge toll on the Mexican American fighter upon his return to the UFC against Takeya Mizugaki, Cruz went on the rampage and stopped the Japanese in the very first round. He was set to take on TJ Dillashaw for a crack at the UFC Bantamweight Championship but as luck would have it, Dominick Cruz suffered yet another ACL tear which sidelined him for the next few months at least.
However, now Cruz has said that he could return to action sooner than expected, even indicating that a return in 2015 is not completely off the table, which would be quite a miracle. Read more »
