UFC bantamweight champion Dominick Cruz has ruled the roost since dropping from featherweight down to the 135-pound division, reeling off seven consecutive victories in the lighter weight class. In fact, he has only one loss on his entire professional record, which currently sits at 17-1.

The only fighter to ever defeat him was Urijah Faber when the two met for Faber’s WEC featherweight championship belt.

Cruz’s next defense will be against Faber, who has been busy reinventing himself as a bantamweight fighter after being knocked of his featherweight perch.

They square off in the main event of UFC 132: Cruz vs. Faber on July 2 in Las Vegas.
