After almost three year layoff, Dominick Cruz returns at UFC 178


Dominick Cruz last fought in the UFC Octagon in October of 2011, a successful title defense against Demetrious Johnson. Cruz suffered a torn ACL in July of 2012 that has sidelined him since then, but will finally make his return to the cage this September:

Former UFC bantamweight champion Dominick Cruz will make a long-anticipated return to action against Takeya Mizugaki at UFC 178 on Sept. 27 in Las Vegas.

Cruz confirmed the 135-pound contest to on Tuesday.

"I'm excited to finally be back," Cruz said. "It's been a long time coming, but I feel great and I'm already training hard. Mizugaki is tough and he's been on a roll, but I'm ready to get back in there and prove that I'm the best bantamweight in the world."

yeah right. Cruz will be walking down the street and his leg will just detach and get picked up by a hawk.

I'm with you there, but if he comes out with the win injury free it will be a huge confidence builder going forward.

I'll believe it about a week after I see it.Cause it'll probably take about a week to believe I actually saw a Cruz fight.
