Dominick Cruz will be returning to the Octagon later this year.


The former UFC bantamweight champion will be taking on top contender Jimmie Rivera in a pivotal contest at UFC 219. The news was announced Wednesday night by the promotion. UFC 219 is set to take place on Dec. 30 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nev. No headlining fight has been announced for the card.

Ask and you shall receive, Jimmie... this was really the fight that made most sense for both, anyways. Looking forward to it!! That's a solid women's sw fight, too!!

Both great match ups. Good to see Cruz in a 3 rounder

Dom vs Rivera is an awesome match up! It's a shame it's not 5 rounds, though. :/

Dom & Rivera!? Wooowweeee!! What a stylistic nightmare for each other. No clue who to pick here. Jimmie impressed the hell out of me against Faber last year. Scary to think he could have improved more over one year.

Looks to be a very tactical matchup. What's the chance it goes to decision?

Pretty high I would bet. Rivera isn't a big finisher (not that he doesn't lack the power) especially in the grappling dept. and Dom took some heavy shots from Garbrandt who can prove he can KO almost anyone. Then Dom, shit aside from Takeya, when was the last time he's finished anyone? Decision city here.
