    Preview for UFC tonight just stated it before the commercial break. I wonder what the stated reason will be.

    Edit:
    Cruz's camp stated he's looking to return to the octagon in 2-4 months.

    They also asked how Cruz's camp felt about fighting Mizugaki and they said they liked it but the UFC is taking it slow to see how his body responds before booking him in another fight.

    He needs a warm-up fight before a title shot imo. Hes been out for a while now.

    A warm up is necessary. October 2011 was a long time ago.

    Either right before or right after UFC 173 Dana said he won't deny Cruz a Title shot if that's what he wants but he thinks that Cruz should opt for a warm up fight first

    Except Dillashaw's face will be a mess just like what Barao did to him.

    Good. I prefer it that way. He definitely needs a few warm up fights to get himself back to his cocky self.

    It's definitely best that he gets a warm up fight, or even two.
