Tucson, AZ (KOLD) - Dominick "TheDominator" Cruz lost the UFC Bantamweight title belt, but he never really... lost the UFC belt. After 2 ACL surgeries the former champ was stripped of his title, but Sept 27th he'll attempt to begin a journey back to the UFC penthouse.
I caught up with Cruz at Casino Del Sol Saturday night as he planned to coach members of team Alliance, who he trains with in San Diego, in the WFFMMA fights inside the event center.
Things will change in a month however, he won't be coaching, he'll be doing what he does best... fighting. The Flowing Wells grad Cruz (19-1) will enter the octagon with Takeya Mizugaki (20-7) inside the MGM on the UFC 178 undercard.
