I love watching the man work but it would be a miracle if he comes back at 75% of his former capability. Would love to see him get his belt back, but reality is a harsh mistress.
This, agreed 100% except that I don't particularly care for Cruz. He's undeniably a great fighter but I don't like his "happy feet" pitter patter fighting style.

Close or not, Cruz won that fight. Faber came into the fight saying he had the better wrestling and Dominick proved him wrong. Have u ever seen Cruz badly hurt from strikes? His chin is solid. I think a healthy Cruz can beat Dillashaw and Barao.
TJ lost to Dodson in his UFC debut nearly 3 years ago and Dodson is not just some 125er. Dodson would be a contender in 135 as well.

No Shame in losing to Dodson. Mighty Mouse has been on a tear and he probably should have lost to Dodson. Dodson had him on the ropes and didn't go for the kill
