I think Faber has some talent, but I'm not a fan of the guy at all. I'm don't really support anyone on Team Alpha Male for that matter. Zuffa definitely seems like they want him to have the strap though.
I was disappointed that Cruz got injured because I wanted to see him beat Urijah again, but Barao is a very good replacement. That guy is on a hell of a winning streak and I expect him take Urijah out.
