Dominick Cruz talks about Dillashaw’s title fight! Aljamain Sterling defeated Petr Yan in a bantamweight title rematch in the co-main event of UFC 273. Sterling won the title via a disqualification, Yan hit him with an illegal knee in the first fight, and Sterling was crowned the new champion.
The internet has blasted him for having a title that claims he doesn’t deserve one, but Sterling has stood his ground after his most recent win and is now looking to defend his belt against hungry rivals. During UFC 273, Sterling called out TJ Dillashaw to a fight, and TJ was present at the event.
He accepted his commitment immediately and this fight seems more possible than ever. There are plenty of others in the division waiting for a fight and former champion Dominick Cruz expressed his concern that TJ is getting a title shot. He picked up the topic during his performance The MMA lessonhe said, “He was banned for cheating so to get a chance after a win, okay, cool. Sounds like a mix up to me. He got two years off, didn’t really lose any money and then just gets back on.”

Sterling came back and defeated Cory Sandhagen in his last fight, but Cruz believes other athletes put in a lot more work and he deserves the shot more than he does, “It’s not like he had an easy fight, Sandhagen isn’t kidding.” said Cruz. “But still, a fight? Pedro Munhoz and all these other people in the division that just competed, competed, competed, it’s crazy.”
He added, “But I kind of understand it because when I was sacked for so long because of my knee injuries, I came back, fought Mizugaki, blew my knee out again and came back and got a title shot. But I hadn’t lost and I hadn’t gotten in trouble for anything, I just busted my knees. So it’s a little bit different and that’s how I got my chance.”
Cruz has attempted to put up a fight against another legend, Jose Aldo. Aldo has racked up wins since his loss to Petr Yan, and he also challenged Sterling to a title shot. Nothing has been booked yet, but it would be interesting to see what happens next.
