Earlier this year, Dominick Cruz returned to the Octagon to fight TJ Dillashaw for the bantamweight championship he never lost inside the Octagon. Cruz, who had the belt stripped from him due to injuries, won the fight via split decision to reclaim his bantamweight championship.
In the wake of TJ Dillashaw’s unanimous decision win over Raphael Assuncao at UFC 200, the former bantamweight champion took to Instagram to blast Cruz for wanting a superfight against Jose Aldo or Conor McGregor.
It's comical to me how much of a pussy @dominickcruz is. Trying to do whatever he can to not fight me, pushing to fight senior citizens that should be in a retirement home. Now wanting to jump weight classes to fight so he can avoid me. As usual, he's running and doesn't want to fight, he and I both know I won that first fight and he'll say what ever he can to avoid giving back what's rightfully mine! I'm his biggest threat. Stop running, let's get this on paper @UFC.
