I had Cruz and Faber with 2 rounds apiece going into the 5th too--I thought that score was crap.

But I agree with Bonnie--I was frustrated with Faber for not being more aggressive when he knocked Cruz down--he should have been all over him! I understand, you don't want to get faked out but jeez!
It was close, but you can't get "close" in a title fight--if you're gonna take the title on a decision, it's gotta be without a doubt! I think Faber will see that he really didn't win the fight, as he thought, when he watches it back. I can't wait to see these 2 fight again!

Faber/Cruz basically backs up the argument for more rounds in MMA fights.

Highlight of the night for me was still seeing Tito do the gravedigger dance.

Personally, I thought it wasn't a very exciting fight at all. I'm all about action, not gameplans and bouncing around for five mins.

This is exactly what "killed" boxing (even though it's not dead)..."Armchair Warriors"...if you will....

Heaven forbid somebody actually use their brain in a fight that only lasts a half hour of YOUR life but means everything to THEIR life....

What is Cruz' fight style, kindof looks like he trains in Capoeria in some shape or form?

I'm not an armchair warrior, not in the least. I simply stated what I LIKE to watch, opposed to what I don't like watching. Heaven forbid someone have a different opinion than yours JB.
