It has been 1,092 days since Dominick Cruz last fought in the octagon. He needed no more than than sixty-one seconds to finish Takeya Mizugaki.
After an authoritative takedown, Mizugaki tried to utilize the cage to wall-walk back to his feet. Cruz was aware of this and caught him with a brutal right hand that stunned Mizugaki. Cruz followed up with more right hands and Mizugaki was clearly out of it. It wasn’t long before Cruz forced Mizugaki to face-plant, and the referee finally stepped in.
Talk about an impressive return!
