Former Bantam Champ Cruz Returns This Fall

The Dominator is back this Fall...
The wait is over for former UFC bantamweight champion Dominick Cruz. Following nearly three years away from the Octagon due to a series of injuries, Cruz will return to active duty on Saturday, September 27, to face number five ranked Takeya Mizugaki on the Jon Jones vs. Alexander Gustafsson II undercard in Las Vegas.

Unbeaten in nine fights at bantamweight, Cruz' last bout was on October 1, 2011, when he successfully defended his crown against current flyweight boss Demetrious Johnson. Multiple injuries sent him to the sidelines and forced him to relinquish his title in early 2014. But after given the green light to fight again, he will look to begin the road back to the title against Japan's Mizugaki, who has won five straight, most recently a decision win over Francisco Rivera at UFC 173 in May.
