Before a long list of unfortunate injuries derailed his career, Dominick Cruz was, by far, the most dominant force in the Bantamweight division of the Ultimate Fighting Championship or the UFC and was also the divisional champion at that time. He was forced to surrender his championship belt earlier this year after a groin injury delayed his comeback further and since then, Renan Barao, the former interim divisional champion, has unified the UFC Bantamweight Championship to become the lineal champion after his win over Urijah Faber.
While every Mixed Martial Arts fan is eager for Cruz to make his long waited return to the UFC, Dana White, the president of the UFC has claimed that he has no idea when the 29 year will be fit enough to make his comeback to the promotion.
However, in spite of this long layoff from the sport, Dominick Cruz would still be in line for an immediate shot at the UFC Bantamweight Championship immediately upon his return, if that was what he wanted.
White said that he had heard nothing from Cruz or his minders in recent weeks. He added that he doesn’t know what is going on with him but mentioned that he doesn’t think that after going through such a long layoff, it would be right to throw him in to a championship match when he returns unless that is something he wants.
The UFC boss went on to add that Dominick Cruz was the divisional champion before all this injury woe and he deserves to have a shot at the title again. But Renan Barao is one nasty fighter and according to White, if he were in the shoes of Cruz, he would wait some time before taking the Brazilian on for a title shot, especially after this long a layoff.

Dana White, the president of the Ultimate Fighting Championship or the UFC, the promotion’s Featherweight title holder Jose Aldo and its Lightweight champion Anthony Pettis all remain on very good terms and are working together to thrash out the deal for a super fight between the two.
Speaking at the post fight press conference at UFC 169 over the weekend, both Aldo and White stated that a super match between the two divisional champions remain a priority for them for both their next matches and according to White, Anthony Pettis has also given his go ahead to the proposed match up when the topic came up.
He stated that he had had a talk with Pettis and he is certain completely that it is Jose Aldo he wants for his next fight in the UFC Octagon.
Aldo completely routed another challenger for his UFC Featherweight Championship in Ricardo Lamas at UFC 169 and coupled with his previous streak as the champion, a fight between him and Pettis will be an easy sell for the UFC.
And Aldo mentioned that he would fight Pettis immediately if he was given the opportunity.
He stated that he is ready, he has always been ready and he wants the fight to happen. He went on to mention that if the fight was on that very night, he would fight Anthony Pettis but ultimately, left the UFC and Dana White to thrash out a deal for the fight.
Pettis is currently nursing a knee injury and he won’t be able to return before the second half of the year and moreover, if the fight does happen, Jose Aldo might surrender his title and move up to Lightweight, which is where Dana White wants the fight to take place and it is where it probably will.

Nik Lentz has a staggering record of 3-1 since he dropped down from Lightweight to the Featherweight division of the Ultimate Fighting Championship or the UFC, his only loss coming at the hands of Chad Mendes in a meeting earlier this month but if one tends to think he hasn’t been vocal about his chances for a shot at the UFC Featherweight Championship, Lentz will not agree with it.
Ahead of that fight against Mendes at UFC on FOX 9, Lentz made some bold comments as well as predictions, stating that he wants a shot at the title and he feels that he deserves it and he is also confident that given the chance, he will defeat Jose Aldo and take his belt.
He stated that he is already vocal about it, adding that Aldo doesn’t have much time with it; and that is one of the main reasons he wants him to hold on to it because he wants to be the one to inflict a defeat on one of the best pound for pound fighters in the world.
He stated that it would be special to win a world title but to beat someone like Jose Aldo who has completely dominated the division and decimated his opposition would make it a lot more special.
But it seems now that Lentz will have to wait his chance to fight for the title after his loss to Mendes, who is ranked at second behind Aldo in the list of Featherweight fighters in the promotion. But Lentz is still confident that he will be given a shot against Jose Aldo and he is also open to fighting in hostile environments such as in Brazil, where the champion hails from; stating that he has done it before and he can do it again.
