Dominick Cruz will fight for the first time in well over a year on Sunday night, and the former champ will return to the Octagon with a ton riding on the line.

As you know, Cruz will take on reigning bantamweight champ TJ Dillashaw at UFC Fight Night 81, in what has all the ingredients to be a very special fight.

In advance of the bout, the UFC has posted an interesting interview with Cruz, who discusses his career as a commentator, fighting, his lifestyle and yes, Dillashaw. Cruz also relays why he thinks Dillashaw hasn’t been engaging in as much trashtalk as him…You can check it out below.

UFC FN 81 will be hosted by Boston’s TD Garden Arena.
