Dominick Cruz and Urijah Faber
Star Wars. The Godfather. Back to the Future. Cruz vs. Faber?

Well when you talk about great trilogies, UFC bantamweight champion Dominick Cruz and top contender Urijah Faber have had one of the more memorable run over the last few years.

It will all come to a close during the UFC card set for July 7 in Las Vegas, when Dominick Cruz and Urijah Faber meet with the 135lb title on the line.

UFC co-owner Lorenzo Fertitta revealed the date for the fight on Twitter on Thursday.

Currently the series is tied at one win a piece for each Faber and Cruz, the two bantamweights will first spar during the 15th season of the ‘Ultimate Fighter’, which kicks off on March 9 in Las Vegas.

The show will run for 12 weeks, leading up to the ‘Ultimate Finale’ and then just about a month later Faber and Cruz will square off for one fight go round before closing the book on their trilogy of fights.

The two fighters will definitely have a lot more to say during the upcoming reality show, and it will all build towards a crescendo when they meet on July 7, almost exactly a year after their last showdown.

Cruz defeated Faber in that fight by unanimous decision at UFC 132.
