“The California Kid” outstruck and outwrestled Brad Pickett for three rounds, and earned a unanimous decision victory. Prior to the bout, the 37 year-old Faber had announced it was going to be his final fight.
Faber sat down with the FOX Sports broadcasting crew after his win, which includes his rival Cruz. The latter, however, had a gift waiting for Faber, and made it clear he wants to put their rivalry “to rest”. You can watch the interesting back-and-forth below.
Cruz and Faber fought three times in the past ten years, and the current bantamweight champ won two of the fights.
