Former WEC featherweight champ Urijah Faber and Eddie Wineland made their big league debuts Saturday night at UFC 128. After losing the opening five minutes, Faber rallied to take home the unanimous decision (29-28, All Three Judges) victory.
“The California Kid” dropped to the 135-pound division in his last Octagon outing and submitted Takeya Mizugaki at WEC 52 in November. Following his latest win, Faber called for a shot at Dominick Cruz’s bantamweight belt.
Although he didn’t provide the spectacular finish in tonight’s co-main event, Faber promised things would be different if he gets his hands on Cruz.
