UFC 199 to Feature Rockhold – Weidman II , Cruz – Faber III
By FCF Staff
UFC 199 will feature not one, but two title fights. During the promotion’s “Unstoppable” press conference this afternoon, the UFC confirmed that middleweight champ Luke Rockhold will face Chris Weidman at the event, and that bantamweight champ Dominick Cruz will take on Urijah Faber.
Weidman (13-1) and Rockhold (15-2) battled in December, and the latter took the 185 title by stopping him in the fourth round.
Cruz (21-1) and Faber (33-8) will be fighting for a third time at UFC 199. In their first meeting back in 2007, Faber won the fight via a quick submission. Cruz worked his way to a unanimous decision win, however, in their 2011 rematch.
UFC 199 will be hosted by the Forum in Los Angeles, California on June 4th.
