Since TJ Dillashaw emerged from his cocoon a new super-powered being and laid waste to the formerly-unbeatable champ Renan Barao, there hasn’t been much by way of storyline in the bantamweight division. Raphael Assuncao has been on injured and on ice, and former Team Alpha Male bud Urijah Faber has been making noise like he could challenge Dillashaw, but other than that, what else is there?
Thankfully, there’s former champ Dominick Cruz, who’s been plagued by injuries himself, but who has somehow managed to hold himself together for what should be an intriguing “old versus new” matchup with Dillashaw at Sunday’s UFC Fight Night 81.
Cruz has revealed himself to be a fantastic fight analyst with his FOX gig, and the dude can talk up a storm – which, in addition to being a badass fighter, is a good trait to have.
Anyway, here’s the Embedded vid featuring Cruz and Dillashaw. Watch and enjoy.
