Dana White confirmed on UFC Tonight that Bantamweight Champion TJ Dillashaw will finally square off against Dominick Cruz in the main event at UFC Fight Night in Boston January 17th.
Dana did bear in mind that this fight is scheduled as long as Dominick Cruz stays healthy as he was unfortunately stripped of the title due to multiple injuries that kept him out of action.

Dominick Cruz has a MMA record of 20-1 and has a UFC record of 3-0. He holds notable wins over Urijah Faber, Demetrious Johnson, Ian McCall and Joseph Benavidez. Cruz’s latest win was against Takeya Mizugaki via TKO punches in Round 1 at UFC 178 in Las Vegas.
