    I was puzzled on why the UFC didn't pit Aljamain Sterling to Dominick Cruz,

    Sterling is a high ranked fighter and Cruz is former Champ whose always on a sideline due to injuries.

    I hope UFC replace Aljamain Sterling's opponent with Dominick Cruz.

    Uh, no.

    Who has Sterling beaten to deserve a top 5 opponent like Cruz?

    His biggest win is against a shot Barao.

    I think Stamann beats him.

    Cruz is a modern Musashi but he should be forced to take at least 1 fight before a title shot. Probably Assuncao or Moraes, whomever doesn't get shot at TJ. But Sterling would also be a good matchup for Cruz.
