Time heals all wounds, and Urijah Faber’s adversarial relationship with Dominick Cruz is no exception.

The retired UFC star spoke about the current state of his relationship with the former bantamweight champion in an appearance on Submission Radio:

“I think that Dom and I are longtime frenemies,” Faber said. “I’ve got his phone number and we talked on occasion and kind of crushed the beef. I respect him a lot and I feel like it’s the same for me but it wasn’t always the case with that.”

The Team Alpha Male patriarch also revealed how an awkward situation turned into a fence-mending moment for himself and Cruz.

According to Faber, the UFC’s public relations team put him and Cruz on a United Service Organizations (USO) tour together.

Faber shared that he was forced to work with Cruz as they participated in a military drill as part of the event.

‘The California Kid’ added that spending time with the servicemen puts into perspective how insignificant UFC rivalries are compared to what they fight for.

The 42-year-old also said that he’s been communicating with Cruz even when they were both active.

Faber revealed that, even back then, he had been texting the former bantamweight champion, though they mostly did it to talk smack to each other.
