The trilogy bout between UFC bantamweight champion Dominick Cruz (19-1 MMA, 2-0 UFC) and longtime rival Urijah Faber (26-5 MMA, 2-1 UFC) is targeted for UFC 148 on July 7 in Las Vegas.

That's according to UFC co-owner Lorenzo Fertitta, who was full of announcements overnight, posting the information on his Twitter account.

First, the two will square off as opposing coaches on the upcoming 15th season of "The Ultimate Fighter."

I was really hoping to see Cruz vs. Benavidez 3, 4, and 5.

I wanted to see at least one more Cruz vs. Benavidez fight. Cruz/Faber III is too soon imo.

Man, they really want Faber in the spotlight. Although it should be a good scrap, I'm not real interested in it tbh

I like both guys but the only reason I want to see it is because either guy could win and should be exciting, I picked Cruz in their last fight but I may go with Urjah here for some reason.

It's hard not to get excited for a title fight, but I think the 3rd installment of Cruz v Faber will be very similar to the 2nd fight. Cruz via decision.

im with most everybody else, im not that excited about this fight, its not too soon, its making the bantamweight div slow down and they need to get it out of the way.

Cruz picks him apart again. And again and again and again and any more times they want to try and make Urijah champ. At least against Cruz. This fight doesnt interest me at all. But like every other ufc card ill watch it.

Urijah is the new Randy - lose half the time but still get title shots lobbed at you 24-7.
