Former UFC bantamweight champion Dominick Cruz is set to make his UFC return at UFC 178 against Takeya Mizugaki. Cruz is coming off a nearly three year absence from the Octagon, which was due to two torn ACL’s.

Mizugaki will be riding a five fight win streak into the bout, including wins over Bryan Caraway Erik Perez, and most recently a win over Francisco Rivera. A win over Cruz would almost certainly put Mizugaki in title contention.

UFC 178 takes place on September 27th in Las Vegas, and features the rematch between Jon Jones and Alexander Gustafsson.
