It looks like the fans will not be getting the Dominick Cruz vs. Urijah Faber title fight just yet as it’s being reported that Cruz has opted to undergo surgery on his hand. Both Faber (24-4) and Eddie Wineland (18-6-1) have verbally agreed to a bout on UFC 128. The event will take place in New Jersey on March 19, 2011.
Faber will have a tough challenge against Wineland who has been on a 4-fight winstreak as of late, of which were by a big KO slam on Ken Stone and a TKO of Will Campuzano.
The California kid was also as impressive in his debut at bantamweight against Takeya Mizugaki in November where he pulled out a first round rear-naked choke.
