UFC Urijah Faber 132 Dominick Cruz

In one month, UFC bantamweight champ Dominick Cruz and Urijah Faber (Pictured) will have the opportunity to enjoy each others company for the next 13 consecutive weeks. However, “The Ultimate Fighter 15” coaches couldn’t help but rekindle their rivalry Thursday night on Twitter.

It all started when Cruz referenced an interview where “The California Kid” claimed he would take his arch nemesis in the upcoming edition of TUF and inside the Octagon once the season wraps.

Cruz’s buddy and Blink 182 drummer, Travis Barker, even got in on a little bit of the action.

Here’s a look at last night’s back-and-forth banter:

Cruz: Lmao. Faber says of Cruz: “I can beat him in a coaching gig. I can beat him in a fight.”

Travis Barker: Haha, let em’ talk homie.

Faber: u think thats funny boys?

Cruz: let’s keep it real…im 4-1 against any1 you’ve coached 2 try n beat me including yourself…so YES its funny!

Faber: & u never thanked me 4 saving your life. @TheDomin8r when I let go of the choke after you tapped. Gave you breath again. Ur welcome! #alive

Cruz: thanks for letting go 5years ago,choking sounds similar to what u have done on ur last 4Title Fights! #pastyourprime

Faber: In ur own world again? @TheDomin8r The stinky kid on the playground. 4-1? U can run homey, but u can’t hide. What u gonna do Decision me up?

Cruz: wat u call a Decision I call a win!…u can keep the prom queen tiara mr popular, I’ll keep the @ufcbelt! #stinkykidsrule!
