Brian BowlesUFCDominick Cruz


Faber was the more active fighter in the first round, getting the better of the standing exchanges and then picking Bowles up and slamming him down late in the round, controlling him on the ground and hurting him with ground and pound to earn a clear 10-9.

In the first 30 seconds of the second round Faber clocked Bowles with a big right uppercut, knocked him down and exploded on him on the ground. Bowles briefly regained his composure, but Faber sunk in a guillotine choke, rolled onto the top into full mount and forced Bowles to tap.

And now Faber will wait for his third shot at Cruz.
