It has been four years since the sport's two most-talented 135-pound fighters faced one another.

However, UFC bantamweight champion Dominick Cruz (17-1 MMA, 0-0 UFC) and No. 1 contender Urijah Faber (25-4 MMA, 1-0 UFC) meet again at UFC 132, officials announced on Saturday.

After the announcement, Cruz spoke exclusively to MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) about the highly anticipated rematch and the origins of his feud with Faber.

Then-champion Faber defeated Cruz in a 2007 WEC featherweight title bout, one in which Cruz made his organizational debut.

Cruz is going to show a lot of people why he's the best 135er in the world in their rematch.

I think Cruz has improved and Faber has declined, should be a good fight.

Cruz is just a different animal since their first fight. Faber was the man then, now Cruz is carrying the torch at 135, and I think he will for a very long time.
