CRUZ SET TO COACH

The UFC confirmed that the pair of famous rivals Dominick Cruz and Urijah Faber will coach for the next season of The Ultimate Fighter when the revamped series moves to its new home on FX. The season will feature both lightweight and welter weight contestants and should begin airing on March 9, 2012, with a two-hour long premiere.

Dominick Cruz vanquished Urijah Faber and retained the UFC bantam weight title. Now, the champ has begun preparations for a rematch which promises to be thrilling and action-packed for all the enthusiastic viewers.

As the 135-pound division’s best fighter,Cruz has solid stronghold as he captured 10 straight fights. Overall he has lost only to Faber in 2007 only to win the rematch which was one of the most awaited events of 2011. Most recently, he defeated Demetrious Johnson by decision at the UFC on Versus 6.
Dominick Cruz is also known as ‘The Dominator’, a name that suits him perfectly. He has played in the Lightweight Division from 2005 to 2006, in the Featherweight Division from 2006 to 2008 and in the Bantam weight Division from 2008 to present date.

Dominick Cruz was delighted to hear the news and confirmed by stating,”This is a dream come true, to get a chance to coach TUF and beat Faber again is all the motivation I need. This is going to be an insane season of The Ultimate Fighter.”

The new season of The Ultimate Fighter will air on Fridays for 13 weeks, with live fights on each episode. This would probably put a Cruz-Faber bout in June, about a year from their last match.

Cruz is trained in Wrestling, Boxing and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu plays for Alliance MMA with Team Lloyd Irvin. He holds an honored rank as a Blue belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.
