Dana White: “There’s a lot of things we need to talk about with him. He is our champ, he is our guy, he needs time or whatever but we are getting to the point now where we really need to make a decision. This poor kid, I’ve never seen anybody with more bad luck than Cruz. And for him, coming back into this division – you know the way this sport is, to be have been off for two years is you know, I don’t think we have ever had anyone be off as long as he has. We’ve given him a lot of time, I like the kid and I have so much respect for him.”

He's been quite lucky to hold onto his title for this long in fairness.

He's not that entertaining of a fighter, he looks like a glitch on the TV, honestly most people think Renan Barao would chop him down all night long.

Barao deserves to be the real champion. Cruz deserves a shot when he comes back and a warm-up if he wants one.

This is what I was thinking as well. I don't like taking the title away from someone, but he's had such a long lay off that at this point it seems like the only option.

sucks to see a champ down, plus the division will always have an asterisk since the champ went down due injury instead of a lose.
