UFC 128 Results: Urijah Faber wins a Unanimous Decision against Eddie Wineland

The California Kid Urijah Faber scored his second consecutive Bantamweight Division victory, this time defeating the former Champion Eddie Wineland via a Unanimous Decision. All three judges scored the bout 30-28 in favor of Faber, perfectly indicating on what went inside the Octagon.

Wineland managed to surprise Faber in the First Round with an excellent submission defense and highly effective dirty boxing. However, Faber managed to bounce back in the following rounds, finally taking Eddie Wineland to the ground and delivering damage on the feet.

Urijah Faber improved his MMA record to 25-4, deciding to call out the reigning UFC Bantamweight Champion Dominick Cruz. Faber and Cruz have a lot of bad blood against between them, what can surely serve as a good background to what could be the first Bantamweight/Featherweight main event in UFC history.

    Not impress with Faber but Wineland
    he did pretty good , Faber won the third with the last takedown
    btw it was 29-28 meaning Faber won 2 rounds and Wineland 1
    and the other 2 were close. not so dominant by Faber.

    Still i dont think he deserves Cruz, maybe a fight with Torres or Bowles to prove he is the no.1 contender
