With the bantamweight title picture in major flux, UFC President Dana White said he's unsure just when his champion will be back – let alone his interim titleholder.

I'm getting in the same mind frame as I did with GSP when he was injured.

Baraos number 1 in the world right now IMO. Cruz's won 8 fights in 4 years.
4 Flyweights - McCall, Johnson and Benavidez twice
Brian Bowles who has slipped big time.
Ivan Lopez (who?!?!)
Scott Jorgenson who's no longer top 5
And Faber. Admittedly Faber is still a big name.

But right now Cruz's don't look al that relevant.... Faber is Cruz's Koscheck right now. Without that win he'd have only scored wins off "old timers" and small Bantamweights.

If Cruz does return he needs the tune up Faber fight IMO. Not for the division but facing the best fighter in the world with little holes in his game is not good for your long time health if your coming off multiple surgeries and a long lay off. Fabers not the best choice either but anybody else and the win would be irrelevant.

Maybe this doesn't make sense but it makes sense to me....
