Cruz by UD. If he comes back in even a fraction of his previous form he should take this one. Then again can never count out Takeya. It's a shame since I was rooting for Takeya to move up the division but can't pick against my boy Cruz.

GSP 1, 3, 5. And STILLLL the welterweight champion of the world... GEORGES "RUSH" ST. PIERRE!
Cry all you want but Mayweather is still 49-0.

Mizugaki deserves better than being fed to Cruz. Hope he pulls the upset (would it even be an upset at this point?)

This match-up makes me excited because I think it favors Mizugaki.

It's crazy to think that Cruz has been absent from competition for 3 years.

Mohammed Ali was a shell of his former boxing self after 3 years in jail.

Cruz wasn't in jail, but he was recovering from a series of serious injuries.

That may be worse.

Mizugaki has been on a tear with 5 consecutive wins.
While I get your point, and yes he did not fight, Ali was free over those three years while his conviction was on appeal.

Exactly. Until I see him walking towards the cage, I won't keep my hopes up for a Cruz return.

Do we really think he is going to get all the way to the fight?

Good for the competition in general if he returns but the chances are he is not.

After he tried to hold onto the title longer by talking crap about facing Barao in February and, of course, not doing it, no one should believe a word Cruz says. That was truly a despicable move.
