Dana White Will Announce Urijah Faber's Opponent on Friday’s TUF: Live

| by

One half of this seasons coaches on TUF: Live is sitting in anticipation for this Friday’s live episode. Urijah Faber learned earlier this month that his fellow coach, Dominick Cruz was injured and forced to withdraw from his championship bout with Urijah Faber at UFC 148.

In a way to make fans tune in to the episode, UFC President Dana White has announced that he will announce Faber’s opponent live on this Friday’s The Ultimate Fighter: Live. Over the past few weeks many critics have complained about the ratings of this seasons show.

The bout between Faber and his unnamed opponent will be for the Interim UFC Bantamweight championship.

The short list of possible candidates is Renan Barao, Michael McDonald and Ivan Menjivar.

Faber has shown a preference in facing off with Barao and believes that he is the most worthy opponent. Michael McDonald would definitely be next on the list with his recent KO victory over former Bantamweight champion, Miguel Torres. Finally Ivan Menjivar is not a complete long shot, as he is coming off of three straight victories and his most recent over John Albert won him submission of the night honours.
