Cruz teams up with Aguilar and McCrory

MMAjunkie Radio starts at noon ET with Jessica Aguilar, Tamdan McCrory, John Morgan and Dominick Cruz on the microphones!

Cruz, the former UFC champion, is working for both MMA Junkie and FOX Sportsdesk for the coverage of the UFC 187 event that will take place on Saturday. His co-host on the radio will be female champion Jessica Aguilar, who got her WSOF release and might be heading to the UFC very soon. They are joined by Tamdan McCrory, who is currently biding his time before a probable Bellator MMA title shot.

The MMAjunkie Radio broadcasts from noon to 2 p.m live from Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino in the Las Vegas (also available on SiriusXM Sports Zone).

Dominick Cruz

Meanwhile, Cruz is slowly getting back into shape and recovering from a 3rd ACL surgery.  He’s back in the gym, pound the bags and aims to get back to full fitness before the summer is out. The former champion wants a shot at the UFC bantamweight belt – one that he never lost – in his very first fight after his injury!  Whether he’ll get the fight is another matter entirely – and the guys at titanbet don’t fancy his chances!

Cruz said that the time out has made him how badly he wants to regain the title, and what he really wants is to jump in at the deep end with a fight with Dillashaw or whoever gets his title as his first bout.

“I think Dillashaw will have it. I want to fight him and show him that he never was the best, he never was the champ.”
