“Inside MMA” provided exclusive footage of Dominick Cruz getting back inside the training room on Friday night’s show.

Cruz, the now former UFC bantamweight champion, suffered a groin injury as he was preparing to finally return from two knee surgeries and defend his title against Renan Barao.

The UFC was forced to strip him of his belt after the injury, but Cruz has vowed to make a return to action.
