Will have been on the shelf for 2 YEARS...

And there is still no fight scheduled.

How on earth is he going to come back from this? There are not many athletes that I can think of who missed two season and ever made it back to the highest levels of the sport again. And this is more than two seasons because MMA is year round.

FYI: GSP was out 19 months with his knee injury (it seemed like he was being over cautious to me - but that may just be me)

The worst part for Cruz is his style is very dependent on lateral movement.

First time he used the cadaver method but his body rejected it and the second time he did the same one as GSP.

This is an extremely cogent point...

Love Cruz but bArao has defended more times has he not? I think he should be given the title to allow Cruz a warmup fight when he returns. Phone Post 3.0

He should be stripped of the title. Too long on the shelf.

It is bizarre that the UFC is keeping him as champ but I just have no idea how he is going to be any good when he returns. And what are they going to do? Throw him in with Barao after 2+ years on the shelf? Why not strip him, give him a warm up fight, if he looks like the same old Dominick then put him in vs. Barao and if not let him take a couple more fights.

The whole situation is being handled as badly as it could be imo...

He'll be back stronger than ever. He is completely healed. I'm in touch with him daily and his training is going better than ever.

He's going to surprise a lot of people when he returns. Phone Post 3.0
