Typically, and understandably, pre-fight promotions have a way of exaggerating how important, or potentially how good a scrap will be. But in the case of TJ Dillashaw – Dominick Cruz, it’s pretty difficult to argue that the UFC Fight Night 81 headliner isn’t ridiculously huge.
After all, we’re talking about a fight that will feature a man in Cruz, who never was beaten to lose the bantamweight title. Injuries cost him the belt. In Dillashaw, we have one of the rising stars in the game, who became the first man in almost ten years to defeat Renan Barao. Then he did it again.
Thus, this is why, Joe Rogan is calling Saturday’s bout the “most important” fight in the UFC’s bantamweight history. You can check the preview out below.
