Urijah FaberUrijah Faber has been in a lot of tough fights in his career, numerous “pressure cookers.” But he’s now headed for 12 weeks coaching opposite possibly the one true enemy he has in the sport of mixed martial arts. He’ll coach across from UFC bantamweight champion Dominick Cruz for the duration of season 15 of The Ultimate Fighter.

“I like to have an enemy. What a great guy to be an enemy with,” Faber told MMAWeekly.com’s Damon Martin in an exclusive interview as the season draws near.

As always, he handles the pressure with aplomb, not dreading it, but looking forward to the opportunities it presents, not only for himself, but for all his fellow lighter weight class fighters.

“This is gonna be a move in the right direction in getting the lighter weight fighters the recognition they deserve,” said Faber.

But, of course, he’s also looking forward to taking all the years of hard work that he’s put into the sport and play the situation in his personal favor as well.

“I’m reaching my best years and it’s off the back of a lot of hard work,” Faber said.

“At this point, I’m at my most competitive weight and ready to take advantage of that.”

Faber had all this and much more to say in his exclusive interview with MMAWeekly.com. Check it out…
