The UFC 132 fight card features a lot of well known, huge names in the sport, as well as some lesser known up and comers, and a number of crossroads matches which could make or break the careers of some of those in action. Take a look at the full UFC 132 fight card below to get acquainted with the PPV matches coming up on Saturday, July 2nd.
The headline of the UFC 132 fight card is a bantamweight championship fight with Dominick Cruz taking on Urijah Faber. Faber is the big name, and holds a win over Cruz, but Cruz is the champion, and 135 lbs is his weight class, while Faber has come down more recently from 145 lbs. Faber needs a big win to stay relevant, while Cruz needs to justify his status and winning streak.

Next on the UFC 132 fight card is likely to be a much different fight style wise, with Ryan Bader vs. Tito Ortiz. Bader is a great wrestler and Ortiz will have to find ways around that.
Also on the UFC 132 fight card is Carlos Condit vs. Dung Hyun Kim, two welterweights vying for positioning and to inch closer to a title shot, and a lightweight meeting between Dennis Siver and Matt Wiman, where one man will move higher up the rankings and the other will need a bit of restart.
It’s kind of a crossroads event from beginning to end as you look at the UFC 132 fight card. There are big names from the old days, big names from Pride, and big names from the WEC, but which fighters will still be able to win on the big stage in 2011 at the top level of the sport?
