6.22: Chronicle Live -- Urijah Faber
Inside the octagon and here I favor from a near Sacramento -- getting set for. UFC 132 coming up a week from Saturday MGM grand Las Vegas. This or is it going to be the biggest part of your career era I gotta say so you know I've I've had a lot of championship fights but. This for the USC title. Is the biggest name in mixed martial arts is the biggest bring in and the sports at a level that's never been before that's the case every month this in place though. That's the crown jewel to snatch it. You have -- featherweight champion before I go on up for the bantamweight division against the guy that that you have been very outspoken about that you just dislike it I don't think that a -- like you. Very much you guys fought. What's the 2007 and you actually beat him. Was network started after the fight in the way that all transpired because you're genuinely don't like this -- Yet you know at the bottom line is that like the guy kind of shows me is an inning and best way I can put it is. I think he's jealous is still chip on the shoulder. Before the fight He did some really disrespectful things. And then -- what what what they do it we signed a bunch of posters for charity in the get fighters take moments of like that and halfway through a certain. Those in -- sign all the way across my face you and we keep those used to people that are important -- -- and it. You know it's just disrespectful. And and who another thought is a minute and thirty seconds and you figure okay. Read that but the -- -- continued to grow it in. Is still there and we just don't like each other so. It's going to be good to get in there mix it up again that. Beat him you're such a nice guy on your nasty in the ring here I figured nice guys is the only guy that you fought in the octagon that you're really don't know like. I would say yes this to the sixth in the there's -- guys of them kind of -- about but. This is the real to me so this is have to make it easy for you oh yeah first of all -- a bantamweight titles out -- -- yeah. The title everything so and in the fact that you don't like the guy's got to make this easy for you to get sky yeah you know you tried not to get too emotionally involved. Because this is a sport and I like a lot of guys that -- but. It does make a little bit easier you bit down -- that the nitty gritty and we're gonna do battle and this is. This is the time and a place where. It. It's not about. Just going out and compete its really there's a good. I would think that the gradually more so from him towards you because He is seventeen in the water and his career should mention that. You beat him so the only loss that he's had in his career. Was against you back in 2007. Did you go back and watch video. Of that fight and how do you think you need to be enough for years like. I would say. The biggest thing here is that we're both fighters so the one they had taken up by is that he's very be able and the guy do it. But. We completely changed both of us so. I'm looking forward to another entertaining fight in. Put -- problem began in in all that good stuff but. I don't. Dwell too much and handled -- how you changed out each of you changed in the ensuing four years both the buses and have improved blotter stand up -- feel like. He's actually got in shape. Physically. If you looked at him back in the day it was a real presence known by the think it's changed quite a bit he's improved his footwork and kind of built his own little style. I've just been and developing overtime and all aspects of the game especially in this inept. Now being the most competitive -- for myself 135 pounds. He'll look great I got to say since the last time I saw you look even better so that the fight comes up a week from Saturday so what when you actually go down to Las Vegas I'll be there on Tuesday so via. Headed out league they have to do all sorts of stuff we're out that we have pre weigh in that we have conferences and. And just get us acclimated to so what's the -- and going to be like when you guys go nose to nose is that gonna get a little how. Well testing at Clara rule out of the C had to be honest with this. I think we're both -- me so hungry we're not we think about too much but. You put two people who don't like each other. Within the an I an eyelash from each other -- is not going to be. Did the best thing for freedom us. The primeval animosity there. Did you bring up the fact that He signed over a year you're you're you're like this before did you say anything to him when He did -- let that go before He got I citizen interviews He had an. You know I as today is little more. As on this disguises the pomp. And you know that's left side and it she is such -- and -- his credit. Though he's gone up a little bit he's taking it seriously. You know he's he's got a long road on the way back but. You know -- down his way. Yeah and it's my attention. But when you beat them away from us Saturday July the second out in Vegas MGM -- come back to chronicle that brings the the bantamweight belt I'd love to do that to see it I love to do -- -- I wish you the very best coming up on July the second of about ten days or so He will take -- his nemesis -- --
