MMA Crossfire – Dillashaw defends against former champ Cruz at UFC Fight Night 81

Dominic Cruz (20-1-0) is back and in a big way.

The first and former UFC bantamweight champion is now back to active status, and will face current bantamweight champion TJ Dillashaw (13-2-0) January 17th at UFC Fight Night 81.

Finally, we get to see who the undisputed bantamweight champion is.

It’s an interesting matchup because Cruz never lost his belt in the ring, as injuries forced him to relinquish the belt that Renan Barao subsequently won. Dillashaw defeated Barao at UFC 173.

UFC president Dana White revealed the fight on UFC Tonight.

The venue is yet to be determined.
